Leche Flan


There is no love sincerer than the love of food–And there is no more satisfying in eating and preparing too !

Leche Flan — A sweet influence of Spanish Conquistadores to Filipinos. Also known as creme caramel, custard or simply flan. Sugar is cooked to caramel stage then poured into the mold before adding the custard base. It is usually cooked in a stove on a double-boiler or in the oven in a water bath.

This sweet, rich and decadent dessert is usually served during special occasions and like other Filipino dish, each household has their own version.

Caramel

Put sugar and water in a saucepan. Caramelize on high heat. Line loaf tin with caramel. Be sure to line the sides of the pan.

Custard

Blend all ingredients in a blender. Pour mixture into caramel lined loaf pan. Add Prepared Macapuno.

Cover with aluminum foil. Place tin in a larger baking pan half filled with water. Place pan in pre-heated oven at 375 degrees, and bake flan for about 1 hour or until firm.

Food Notes :

1. Place serving dish over top of loaf pan, and invert. Flan will easily plate, and the caramel provides a wonderful sauce.

2. Macapuno is a preserved coconut meat.

3. I personally like my Leche Flan chilled
