The Adventures of a Calamari Queen

Filipina Foodie

Leche Flan

We’ve had this dessert when we invited our friends to celebrate “cinco de mayo”.  Leche flan is similar to custard/brulee.  This is one of my fave desserts but I rarely make it because I really have a hard time making the caramel part of the dish.  It’s really frustrating because I end up wasting lots of sugar!  I got the recipe from .


10 pieces raw eggs

1 small can condensed milk

1 cup fresh milk (or evaporated milk)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cooking procedure:

1. Using all the eggs, separate the yolk from the egg white (only egg yolks will be used).

2. Place the egg yolks in a big bowl then beat them using a fork or an egg beater

3. Add the condensed milk and mix thoroughly

4. Pour-in the fresh milk and mix well

5. Put the mold (llanera) on top of the stove and heat using low fire

6. Put-in the granulated sugar on the mold and mix thoroughly until the solid sugar turns into liquid (caramel) having a light brown color

7. Spread the caramel (liquid sugar) evenly on the flat side of the mold

8. Wait for 5 minutes then pour the egg yolk and milk mixture on the mold

9. Cover the top of the mold using an Aluminum foil

10. Steam the mold with egg and milk mixture for 30 to 35 minutes.

11. After steaming, let the temperature cool down then refrigerate

12. Serve during dessert. Share and Enjoy!
