How to cook Baked Leche Flan

Baked Leche Flan Recipe,  Leche Flan is the Filipino term for the originally Spanish flan de leche, literally “milk flan”, which is a heavier version of the Spanish flan made with condensed milk and more egg yolks.

Leche flan is usually steamed over an open flame or stove top, although rarely it can also be seen baked. Leche flan is a staple in celebratory feasts.  A heavier version of leche flan, tocino del cielo, is similar, but has significantly more egg yolks and sugar.

This is the bake version of Leche Flan.

Baked Leche Flan Ingredients:

  • 1 can (390g) evaporated milk
  • 1 can (390g) condensed milk
  • 10 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or lemon essence

For the caramel:

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup water

Baked Leche Flan Cooking Instructions:

  • In a saucepan, mix the sugar & water. Bring to a boil for a few minutes until the sugar caramelize.
  • Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum molds – you can use any shape: oval, round or square. Spread the caramel on the bottom of the molds.
  • Mix well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla by hand or blender.
  • Gently pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the aluminum molds. Fill the molds to about 1 to 1 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cover moulds individually with aluminum foil.
  • Steam for about 20 minutes OR
  • Bake for about 45 minutes. Before baking the Leche Flan, place the molds on a larger baking pan half filled with very hot water. Pre-heat oven to about 370 degrees before baking.
  • Let cool then refrigerate.
  • To serve: run a thin knife around the edges of the mould to loosen the Leche Flan. Place a platter on top of the mold and quickly turn upside down to position the golden brown caramel on top.

Cooking Tips:

  • You can tell when the Baked Leche Flan is cooked by inserting a knife -if it comes out clean, it is cooked.

    Hi, I found this site very useful and I like all the recipes that you guyz posted over here. I tried this recipe “leche flan” by baking but it doesn’t turn that good. If you cooked it by oven for 45 minutes it overcooked it.
    I will tried it again but now I will try to cooked it for 25 minutes, let’s say what happend. I will update you guys.
    That’s You All !!! And keep it up !!!
