Hi there! Today I am going to share the sweet little project I did one Saturday afternoon. It was an ordinary Saturday. I went to work as usual then an idea popped in “Why not make a leche flan for my mom?” so I asked my colleagues and they all enthused me how to make one.
Ergo I asked my mom if we have these ingredients and bought some items needed at the grocery on my way home. (I have no problem buying grocery items I find it a lot easier than shopping for my clothes/shoes.)
- 10 eggs
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 can fresh/evaporated milk
- Brown sugar
- Flan mold (Llanera)
Here comes the exciting part. Before I go further please know that I ace in my math subjects and art classes but cooking is not my strong suit. I really did try my best here, put my heart in this project, and was not in a bad mood when I did this. 🙂
Step 1. I just needed the egg yolk so I separated it from the white. Placed it in a mixing bowl then beat it.
Step 2. I poured the condensed milk into the bowl of beaten egg yolk, mixed it, added the fresh/evaporated milk, and mixed it again.
Step 3. I heated the pan to melt the brown sugar until it became caramelized.
Step 4. Next, I poured the caramelized sugar into the flan mold. Spread it evenly. Waited for a couple of minutes then poured the yolk and milk mixture into the flan mold. I covered it with aluminum foil. Then placed it on a steamer for 30 minutes to an hour. Using a toothpick I checked if the leche flan was already cooked.
Step 5. After steaming I placed it inside the refrigerator. (Yes, I was very excited I forgot to wait for awhile before refrigerating it. *head scratch*)
I was able to make 10 leche flan so I shared one to my Aunt and one to my boyfie.
DISCLAIMER: It may not look appetizing but it really taste like a leche flan. I made it especially sweet thus my mom and sibs loved it. I would swear they said it’s masarap/tasty.
I KNOW!!!! I know… You can laugh as hard as you want. Even myself find it laughable too. HAHAHAHA
My boyfriend’s reaction when he saw this hurt me enough. He doesn’t even want to taste it. I made him close his eyes and gave him a spoonful of leche flan. (Poor guy, he doesn’t have a choice. LOLs)
I hope this post brought fun to your day.
Bye for now! *Flying kiss*
