Hello Thanksgiving day dessert: leche flan!


Happy Thanksgiving kitty friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

Normally Thanksgiving dessert is filled with pumpkin-licious treats but my favorite pumpkin pie may have some competition now thanks to my mom’s homemade leche flan!

As I mentioned in a previous blog post , my mom has been trying out various Filipino baked goods and leche flan is the latest.

Below is the recipe
Ingredients: seven egg yolks, one whole egg, one can condensed milk, three tablespoons sugar

Place three tablespoons of sugar into the bottom of a small oval aluminum pan. Hold the pan above an open low flame until the sugar is melted and caramelized. Ensure that the melted, caramelized sugar is spread evenly through pan and then let it cool. On the side, mix the seven egg yolks, one whole egg, and one can condensed milk. Pour the mixture into the aluminum pan and on top of the cooled caramelized sugar. Cover the aluminum pan with aluminum foil and steam for 35 to 45 minutes. Let the flan cool and invert onto the serving plate.

Move over pumpkin pie, this leche flan is the new Thanksgiving dessert to bring smiles.
