How To: Make Filipino-style leche flan

Make Filipino-style leche flan

For the Caramel Ingredients:

1 cup of sugar (white)

half cup of water

1 tsp of vinegar (to avoid sugar to crystallize)

Procedure: Mix water, sugar and vinegar in a saucepan over low heat. Until caramelized (light amber in color). Pour the caramelized sauce into a molder that has been buttered.

For the Flan Ingredients:

8 large yolks

1 can (big) of condensed milk

1/3 cup of evaporated milk (I prefer Alaska if it is available)

1/3 cup of water

Procedures for the Flan: Combine the yolks, condensed milk and evaporated milk, water and mix them lightly in a bowl (don't mix too much because it will have lots of bubbles). When cooked, turn the mold over onto a plate or a platter to release the leche flan. To cook mixture, use a steamer, the water pan of the steamer should be 3/4 full. Water should be running boiling for 7minutes before putting the leche flan in to steam.
