Leche Flan

Here’s What You Need: 

12 egg yolks
1 can condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest or pure vanilla extract

Caramel Syrup
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water

Here’s How: 


In a small sauce pan combine water and sugar. Let it boil over medium high heat. Do not stir. When sugar starts to brown, about 5 minutes transfer the syrup into two 8″ baking pan, with tongs, tip pan back and forth to distribute caramelized sugar evenly in the pan. Set aside. Do the same to another 8″ baking pan. Set pans aside.


In a medium size mixing bowl, mix egg yolks, condensed milk, evaporated milk and grated lime zest. Mix well. Strain mixture equally into two caramel-lined pans.

Methods of cooking Leche Flan 

Steamer:  Cover the flan with aluminum foil and  steam for 40 – 50 minutes on medium heat.

Oven:  Preheat oven to 350F. Place pan in a larger, shallow baking pan and set it in the middle shelf of the oven. Cover the flan with aluminum foil.  Pour enough hot water in the bigger pan to come halfway up the sides of the custard pans. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool then chill before serving.

To unmold, run a knife around the sides, place serving plate on top of the flan and quickly turn the pan over onto the plate.Pour the caramel sauce over the flan.
