cooking 101: leche flan

Monday, May 06, 2013tee

Maybe it was my penchant for sweet things, or maybe it was because I was missing home - I had been wanting to eat leche flan so I decided to make some. It was my first time so I asked mama for her recipe. Here goes...

For the caramel:
  • ratio is: 1 cup sugar is to 1 cup water 
  • Melt white sugar/water mixture in a pot until it melts to brownish color. 
  • Add water and place under slow heat until consistency thickens. 
  • Pour into your leche flan molder, lining the bottom layer.
For the batter:
  • 8 eggyolks 
  • 1 can evaporated milk 
  • 1 can condensed milk 
  • Mix eggyolks, evap and condensed milk in a mixing bowl and stir. 
  • Pour in caramel-lined leche flan molder. 
  • Steam for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. 
  • Remove from steamer and set aside to room temperature. 
  • Let it cool inside the fridge. 
  • Remove from molder. Put upside down to a serving plate. Serve cold.
