Cook with Mi - Leche Flan

As we eagerly anticipate the return of Miss Mi Lunch next week, join us in our latest episode of ‘Cook with Mi’ where we delve into the art of crafting one of our beloved desserts – Leche Flan. In this series, we unveil the secrets behind our recipes, empowering you to recreate the authentic flavours of Miss Mi in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Come, cook with Mi!

10 egg yolks
1 can condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

In a mixer, combine egg yolks, condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla essence. Strain to remove eggs that may not have been properly combined as well as to make the custard smooth.

Put sugar in a Llanera (Leche Flan moulder). In an open medium-sized flame, heat until the sugar melts completely and golden brown in colour (caramel). Cool down and set aside. Pour the flan mixture (custard). Cover the top of the mould with aluminum foil. Steam for 30-35 minutes. After steaming, remove the foil and cool down. Refrigerate overnight. Remove from Llanera by running a knife or offset spatula around the edge to loosen the flan then invert onto the plate.

Serve and enjoy!
