Leche Flan or Filipino Custard is a very popular dessert in the Philippines.  It’s very similar to creme bruleè.  The dessert is traditionally cooked sans cream but adding it makes it a creamy, melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly custard.

    Hi. This recipe of yours sounds and looks delish. I tried flan but only of egg. I´m tempted to try your recipe so I´m taking note.

    I actually use the blender but only in short bursts (pulse setting) like 1-2 seconds then I release, then do it about 2 or 3 times more. I end up with very little bubbles and very smooth homogenous mixture. Easier clean up too! If you use the blender’s other settings aside from pulse, then the blending is longer and air really gets incorporated, resulting to lots of bubbles. Since I have discovered it is actually much easier to do it by blender using pulse setting, I never went back to mixing and straining (where a lot of egg whites get trapped). BTW, I use whole eggs as well, and I still end up with creamy leche flan. I think the main issue in coming up with creamy leche flan is the cooking technique (slow and low, and only up to the point that flan gets jiggly like jello).
    I have never made leche flan made of yolks only as it seems too rich for me (just like cheesecake is too rich for me).

    i could still remember what my teacher in culinary arts have told me (we were cooking leche flan that time – i was still in grade four, i guess, 9 or 10 years old i was) to use toothpick in testing if the leche flan was cooked or not, and one of my classmates was having fun of it, the tip of the toothpick was left on the leche flan and what she did was just putting another layer of the mixed ingredients and also the caramel..haha..when we were done, our teacher tasted it, unfortunately, our teacher got the part where the toothpick was left,..hahah!
