Leche Flan is a dessert made of eggs and milk that is topped with soft caramel. It tastes similar to crème caramel and caramel custard. This delectable dessert is well-known all over the world. Because of its flavor, ease of preparation, and long shelf life, it has become a staple on most restaurant menus. It can also be used as a component in the creation of other delicious desserts.

Here is how you make some!


  • 10 pieces of eggs
  • 1 can of condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 1 cup of fresh milk or evaporated milk
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Recipe & Preparation

  1. Separate the yolk from the egg whites using all of the eggs; only the egg yolks will be used.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks with a fork or an eggbeater.
  3. Mix in the condensed milk thoroughly.
  4. Pour in the fresh milk and vanilla extract. Combine thoroughly.
  5. Place the mold, also known as llanera, on top of the stove and heat over a low flame.
  6. Add the granulated sugar into the mold and thoroughly mix until the solid sugar transforms into a caramel-like liquid with such a light brown color. Note: Depending on where you live, it can be difficult to find a Llanera (traditional flan mold). Individual round pans are easier to use when making Leche Flan.
  7. Spread the caramel (liquid sugar) evenly on the mold’s flat side.
  8. Wait for 5 minutes before pouring the egg yolk and milk mixture into the mold.
  9. Aluminum foil should be used to cover the top of the mold.
  10. For about 30 to 35 minutes, let the egg yolk and milk mixture steam in the mold.
  11. Allow the temperature to cool after steaming and then refrigerate for about one to two hours.
  12. Serve as a dessert. Enjoy!
