My in-laws’ friend is from the Phillipines and she taught me how to make leche flan. She said it is a traditional holiday dish. To me, it tastes a little more like custard than the traditional Latin flan.
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 lemon or vanilla
8 egg yolks
Optional Top layer
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp water
Heat sugar on high until golden brown
Pour into pan.
In a bowl, beat all ingredients except sugar and water and lemon zest.
Add lemon zest to taste.
Pour into pan with sugar. Heat pan in a bowl of water for 1 hour at 350.
After an hour, let cool. Place it on the refrigerator.
When you are ready to eat it, invert it onto a plate and enjoy!
