Sharing Is Caring!

This easy Filipino leche flan recipe is a delicacy among the Filipino people. Creamy, soft, yummy and super easy to prepare. Made with 4 simple ingredients that you most likely have in your fridge and pantry.

In the summer of 2015, we took a family summer vacation to Manila the capital of the Philippines and enjoyed this leche flan almost on a daily basis. Addicted to this flans’s sweet creamy and soft texture and flavor we visited a few local bakeries were they shared their recipe. Although being from Ecuador I’ve been eating flan since I can put a spoon in mouth.

But there was something different about the Filipinos flan that made it unique and different. Of course once we got back home from out trip I hit the kitchen to attempt to make the 2 recipes that were given to me. Below is one of the recipes, actually it’s my favorite version. I will post the other recipe at a later date which is prepared with milk instead of condensed and evaporated milk.

Ingredients

  • 300 grams egg yolks (14 eggs)
  • 100 grams granulated sugar (1/2 cup)
  • 300 ml sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 354 ml evaporated milk (1 can)

Preparation

  • In a medium size saucepan add the sugar and cook on medium heat until sugar caramilizes into a light brownish colour.
  • Remove from heat and dip pot into bowl with room temperature water for a second and Pour caramel into small flan molds filling the base just until covered with caramel.

  • Preheat oven to 375F / (190C)
  • In a mixing bowl add the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk and using a whisk slowly mix until mixture is well combined.
  • Pour mixture through fine strainer into another bowl.
  • Fill flan molds with flan mixture just under the rim and place into baking pan filled with water (about 1 inch height)
  • Place into preheated oven and bake for 45-60 minutes depending on size of flan molds.
  • Flan is ready when it is set at surface and jiggly.
  • Once baking is done remove from oven and flip upside down onto serving plate. Cool for 60 minutes in refrigerator before eating.
