Leche Flan

My siblings are my best friends for life. We may oftentimes have disagreements and quarrel over them, but we will always be there for each other no matter what.

Since my siblings #2 & #3 have their own families and kids, they've been trying out kid-friendly recipes just to satisfy their little rascals' big appetites. Most of the time, I find it difficult to think as to what to cook for the next meal, and that is, I'm only cooking for myself and my husband.  How much more if I am cooking for kids who are picky-eaters and only know adobo and tinola?

My sibling #3 I guess have figured it out so she's been whipping up desserts and kiddy-meals.  Like this one - leche flan which has become an instant hit with her kids.  When I asked my nephews how they rate their mama's leche flan they both said "delicious" and "nice" with big smiles on their faces.  

leche flan or what's left of it :-(

My sibling # 3's leche flan, according to my sibling #4 is smooth, not so sweet, and delicious.  I think that's the reason why she  always forgets to take a good picture of the leche flan every time my sibling #3 cooks one.  

By the way, leche flan is a Filipino custard dessert similar to the creme' caramel. Below is my sibling #3's recipe:



Egg Yolks from 16 eggs
Condensed milk - 1 1/2 can
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1 tbsp

Cooking Procedure:
1.  Separate the egg yolk and the egg whites
2.  In a bowl, beat the egg yolks and the condensed milk together until fully incorporated
3.  In a double boiler, pour water and bring to a boil
4.  In a small pot, combine the brown sugar and the 1 tbsp of water, stir continuously until the sugar dissolves and begins to simmer.  Transfer the caramel to the leche flan molders 
5. When the caramelized sugar are cooled down, pour the egg-milk mixture in it.  
6. Cover the container with foil then steam for 20 minutes.
