While I was cooking our own leche flan for the celebration tonight, I thought of sharing the recipe to you in case you’d like to prepare one for the Media Noche tonight or tomorrow’s New Year lunch or dinner. It’s a quick and easy recipe that almost everyone I know loves.
So while I am waiting for our flans to be cooked I will quickly type in the recipe for you.
- 5 egg yolks
- 1 whole egg
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 large can evaporated milk
- white sugar
- In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and whole egg together.
- Add condensed milk and evaporated milk. Mix well and set aside.
- In a llanera pan, melt 1/4 cup sugar. Keep stirring sugar until melted. Warning: do not leave the sugar on the stove while melting. Burnt sugar is not quite appealing in a flan.
- Once melted, let it cool for about 5 minutes.
- Sift the mixture to another bowl to make sure that there are no egg shells in it.
- Pour the mixture in the llanera with sugar. Don’t worry if the melted sugar hardened again.
- Place the mixture in a steamer and let it cook for 30-45 minutes. Stick a toothpick in the flan. If nothing sticks to it, the flan is cooked.
- Chill the flan in a fridge. One chilled, turn it over the plate and watch caramel drip down the creamy and sweet leche flan.
(No photos of finished product yet because I finished the post before the first flan has been cooked) :p
Happy New Year everyone! Enjoy!
