FAQ About Leche Flan

What is leche flan made of?

The ingredients of Leche Flan are pretty simple: eggs, sugar, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. However, there are many variations of the recipe. For example, some recipes call for vanilla extract or cinnamon sticks.

Leche Flan is a popular Filipino dessert made from eggs, sugar, evaporated milk, and condensed milk. It’s usually served chilled with a little bit of melted butter on top. Some people also like to serve it with caramel syrup or chocolate syrup.

Why my leche flan is not creamy?

There are a few possible reasons for this:
1) You didn’t cook the eggs long enough. The key to a creamy leche flan is cooked eggs – if they’re not cooked through, the Flan will be watery.
2) You didn’t strain the milk mixture well enough. Be sure to strain the milk mixture thoroughly before pouring it over the caramelized sugar – this will remove any lumps and create a smooth base for your Flan.
3) You overcooked the Flan itself. Cooked too long, Flan can become tough and rubbery – not exactly what you’re looking

Is flan Mexican or Filipino?
