Filipino Leche Flan

Leche Flan has been the go to dessert when brining dessert to a gathering.

Flan is the traditional dessert of the Philippines and one of the top desserts known around the world. Various countries have their variation of this dessert. We haven’t found anyone that have tried this recipe to not like our flan. It might be time-consuming to prep but the cooking is just steaming it so pretty much you are done after the preparation. We love using the traditional lanera to cook the leche flan.

Leche Flan is one of those desserts that are a staple at Christmas time along with the fruit salad. It doesn’t matter which Filipino table you go to during Christmas time, for sure leche flan will be there. It combines the two great things: family and sweets.

The thing that we love about leche flan is the different levels of caramel that we have on there. It can be either really light or somewhat dark some of them would prefer. Preparing leche flan can be a family event; there’s different job that people can partake so the preparing will be done sooner. One person can be in charge of separating the yolk from the whites and another can be in charge of creating the caramel.

Come with us and try our recipe for this dessert.

Kain na tayo. (Let’s eat!)
