dessert - leche flan
    #1844971 - 08/24/03 07:22 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

my mom would make this dessert during christmas, easter, birthdays and days which were considered a "special occasion." it got sickning after years of eating it almost every month but soon after i moved abroad and didn't have the luxury of eating home cooked food i started to crave and miss leche flan. it's really simple to make, so i'm sure even you shroom heads can bake it and munch on it when u're stoned or what not :tongue: :nut:

soochi since u're another filipino on this board i'm sure you know of this recipe! i think we should post some of the ethnic foods we grew up with...except of course the usual diniguan, sinigang ng isda, iklog ng maalat (don't think that'll go well with the whiteys :tongue:) etc...

ok on to the recipe

8 egg yolks
1 can of condensed milk
1 can of evaporated milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of sugar
baking pan
bigger baking pan
small pot

preheat the oven to 350F.

in a small pot over low heat, melt the 2 cups of sugar until it's all caramalized. pour the caramalized sugar into your baking pan and make a layer throughout the inside of the pan. keep working the sugar all around the pan until the sugar hardens.

combine the egg yolks, condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla extract. pour into the pan with the caramalized sugar coating. in the bigger pan put the baking pan with the leche flan ingredients into it. put some water in the large baking pan and put them into the oven. The larger pan with water creates steam when you're cooking the leche flan. in theory, it steam bakes it :tongue: cook for 1 hr or until the flan is cooked - one way of testing is by putting a toothpick into the flan and taking it out...if there's flan sticking to the toothpick u need to cook it a bit more if it comes out clean its' ready

boner ape tits (bon appetit)

actually i have a really good empanada recipe that my tita gave me as well. when i went back to the US a few weeks ago i bugged her to give me her recipes :tongue: she finally photocopied all the pages and i plan on making her semi famous pitsi pitsi (kinda like conchinta cept white), tarts and creme puffs :smile:

i got really sick of palabok for some reason...that's one food that i can stay away from...probably the little squid bits that some filipinos put in it made me sick. i prefer pancit sotanghon..mmm can't get enough of that stuff :smile:

ick balut...my cousin told me the proper way to eat balut was to sit out in a dark porch drinking beer, cracking the egg, sipping hte embryotic (sp?) fluid first then digging your teeth into the fetus...ugh that made me sick! maybe i'm just too much of a westernized filipino...but mmm...nothing beats freshly roasted lechon and eating the cripsy skin off the head :nut:

Safeway stores around here sell something called Tres Leche Cake...

It tastes just like it sounds, its like a cake dunked in a glass of milk but its not soggy at all. The cake is firm and the milk is sweet... Wish I had a pice right now.
