I Can Cook: Leche Flan

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.

Ingredients:

  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 large can evaporated milk
  • white sugar

Procedure:

  1. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and whole egg together.
  2. Add condensed milk and evaporated milk. Mix well and set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Once melted, let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  5. Sift the mixture to another bowl to make sure that there are no egg shells in it.
  6. Pour the mixture in the llanera with sugar. Don’t worry if the melted sugar hardened again.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
