Leche Flan (using Whole Eggs)

Whole Egg Leche Flan is very creamy!
I had a post about leche flan in my old kusina, but the how-to's were in a geocities page which is now not viewable. Since there have been those who requested, I am now re-posting it, with my fave recipe and my usual methods.

My MIL usually sneaks into the kitchen to get a slice of this when we get together even before dinner is served on some special occasions. "It kinda grows on you," she said. (Her initial acceptance was mild, now she's kinda addicted to it, so whenever I get lots of fresh eggs from them, I make one for them.)

Some think that egg whites prevent the leche flan from turning very creamy. This is still creamy, and the outcome has a lot to do with the technique in preparation. I do it slow and low (long, 1-hr baking in a water bath on low temp of 295 deg F). Some think using the strainer is the best way to make it smooth. I (the radical me) have made use of the pulse setting of a blender (short bursts only) to make a homogenous mixture with minimal waste (Have you tried using the strainer for this purpose? Then you know how hard it is to push the eggwhite through the mesh, and how hard it is to clean it up later). I like this reecipe not only because it tastes so good in my opinion (I got the recipe from Milkmaid label sometime when I was still in high school), but also it does not make me crazy trying to figure out what to do with the egg whites (like the recipe using egg yolks only). And more importantly, egg white is mainly protein, and egg yolk is mostly cholesterol. So, I really do not want to waste protein and make the egg flan cholesterol-laden, when I can have very rich-tasting leche flan this way (any of my friends who have tasted this can attest to that. In fact, whenever we get together and they see a leche flan on the table, they blurt out "Yehey! Pinagdasal ko yan na gumawa ka ng leche flan. Buti gumawa ka!" I have tasted the yolk-only flan, and to me, it is just too rich, like the cheesecake that my SIL makes and I am not crazy about (nor is my husband, so I am not too motivated to make one). Hence, I have been making this for >20 yrs (steamed when I was in PI on moderate heat for 30 minutes covered with foil, now baked in water bath for 1 hr or so at 295 F).

UPDATE as of March 2008: I brought this as my contribution to a fund-raising activity we had at work, and according to my co-workers, many were asking who made this rich cheesecake-like dessert, and they were raving about it. It was such a big hit!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup white sugar
4 whole eggs
1 can condensed milk (14-oz)
1 can evaporated milk (15-oz)
1 tsp vanilla (alternative: few drops of McCormick lemon extract essence)
(optional: 1 8-oz cream cheese + 1 additional egg for cheesecake-like flan)




Instructions:

NOTE: I prefer to use the oven, using water bath method.

1. Caramelize the sugar in an 8-inch round aluminum pan over low heat (#3 on my stove setting). You may swirl the pan around (use tongs to hold) or stir with a spoon once it starts to melt. It can easily scorch and will be bitter if that happens, so keep an eye on that (takes about 20-30 mins before it start melting, and I prefer a bit of bitterness like that of coffee).
UPDATE (11-21-08): You may want to try caramelizing sugar in the microwave. Place 1 cup of sugar in microwave-safe cup (Pyrex is ok) and add enough water (about 2-3 tbsp) to wet all of the sugar.  Microwave for about 4-5 minutes, keep watching starting on the 4th minutes and wait until it turns into amber-colored liquid per your preference (if you want it lighter, stop earlier). Grab with gloves on (this is very hot!) and then pour into the pan that you are going to cook your flan in, whether small custard cups or 8-in round baking pan. (Make sure your pan sits on a towel or trivet to protect your tabletop/countertop. Quickly tilt to coat before it hardens. (Tip: You may want to let your pan sit on hot water so the caramel would not harden right away once it touches the pan.) See video below.

2. While still hot and fluid, swirl to distribute the caramel to the sides and bottom of the pan.
3. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool and let the caramel solidify.
4. Meanwhile, prepare the steamer (alternatively, you may use the oven, heated to 295 degrees).
5. Mix the rest of the ingredients while heating the steamer (or oven) using the pulse setting in a blender (push the pulse button for about 3 seconds 3 times or until the mixture appears homogenous). Avoid prolonging the blending such that it creates lots of bubbles.
6. When steamer (or oven) is ready, pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
7. Cover with foil before placing in steamer (If using oven, place the pan uncovered into a larger pan with water such that water reaches about 1 inch up the sides of of the leche flan pan- aka water bath). Steam for 30 minutes on medium heat (or bake for about 1 hr at 295 deg F).
8. Check for doneness (I prefer wiggling it rather than using toothpick. If it wiggles at the center pretty much like jello, that is done for me. If it is too fluid, I steam/bake some more.).
9. Let cool before serving (I prefer it chilled for 3 days with foil cover before eating. My in-laws and husband prefer it fresh from the oven).
10. Run a knife around the edges of the flan. Invert onto a deep platter (or pan) to serve.

P.S. This and other recipes were featured in Hannaford fresh magazine (article on page 10) for the May-June 2007 issue, but they revised some of my recipes (probably because they deemed the revisions would cater better to their general readers).

UPDATE as of 4/2/09: Here's a comment from Anna of France (she made the comment under Custard Cake):
i tried your leche flan recipe,and its perfect recipe,leche flan using egg whites,napa wow talaga ako sa texture nya..so creamy, and you are right na super rich talga pag eggyolks lang..thank you atlast my recipe na ako sa leche flan na hindi ma waste ang whites.;

  5. Hi Anonymous,
    I think leche flan will last in the fridge for two weeks (I have not tried, though, because we usually consume ours within 1 week).
    I don't think leche flan will be good to freeze or "preserve."

  6. Hi manang,
    I brought your leche flan recipe to my family get together last friday, and everybody liked it because of the just right sweetness. I do agree that the sweetness in your recipe is just right, but i did not get the same consistency as in your picture, i do not have blender so i used my mixer for few second only just to incorporate, do you think it has something to do with that? Should i try mixing it by hand instead and just steam it? i am really eager to have that texture and consistency as per your pictures hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hi Girlie,
    Yeah, the mixer will have incorporated more air into the mixture, whereas the blender, with its blades sticking up, will just cut through the eggs blend beautifully as long as it is on pulse setting. You could have just tried blending by hand, then use the sieve or cheesecloth to cut through the eggs. Whether baked or steamed, it does not matter.

  9. Hi janis,
    let me know what you think!

    In case you resort back to using just egg yolks, a way to use the eggwhites from making leche flan is to make sans rival.

    I have never made a leche flan as perfect as with this recipe! Laging palpak ang leche flan ko kaya di ako gumagawa nito. Pero this recipe has proven na hindi intimidating gumawa ng leche flan. The best daw sabi ng hubby kong di mahilig sa sweets :) Salamat!

  13. Hi Mitzi,
    Thanks for the compliments! I am glad you and your hubby liked this recipe! It is very hard to convince people to make leche flan using whole eggs...most know it as egg-yolks only, and have the notion that egg whites make it firmer. Thanks for trusting and trying my recipe, and LEAVING your comment for others to see. It means a lot to me, and will be one of the contributing factors for other readers to try this as well.

  14. manang, i love leche flan and i know how to make it using egg yolk only so i always wasted the eggwhites. I wanna try your version "whole egg" but i don't have blender, what do you think is the best solution?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi Anonymous,
    If you don't have a blender, I would suggest pouring the whole mixture into two layers of cheesecloth placed over a deep bowl, then shape it into a bag and squeeze out the mixture. This way, you will not have to "push" the mixture through a sieve if you use "salaan" and you can double run to make sure the mixture really gets homogenous.

  16. ate 15 oz po ba talaga itong evaporated milk na sabi mo 1 can kasi po wala akong mahanap ang nandito na can sa walmart is just 12 oz pero yung condensed ok kasi 14 oz talaga sya. pwede po ba dagdagan nlng sya ng fresh milk (yung evap) to make it 15 oz o dapat talaga evap gamitin? please help me thanks..

  17. Hi Anonymous,
    15-oz talaga yang evap (tiningnan ko sa can bago ko inedit sa ingredients to put the exact amount), pero pwede mo dagdagan ng fresh milk or even half and half cream para mabuo yung 15-oz.

  19. Hi Manang!

    I was browsing for a recipe one day then I found your site. All of your recipe looks delicious! Anyway this particular recipe caught my eye as I've been wanting to try making Leche Flan. I did this last week and it was fantastic. The sweetness and the texture was perfect! Thankyou very much!Just a question po, can I make egg pie using this recipe? I think i prefer this than the traditional one. More power

  20. HI Wengy,
    Sensya na, halos nakalimutan ko na tong comment mo...Anyway, thanks for the feedback! Buti naman okay yung 2nd try mo!

    Hi Anonymous,
    It would be perfectly okay to use this for egg pie, although I am not sure how you would create the brown film on top kung hahaluin mo yung whipped egg white with the leche flan mixture. Maybe you can skip that part...

  21. Hi Manang,
    Thank God I found your website.Thanks for all your ideas. Leche flan is one of my faves. I only use yolks with mine. I will try it with the whites. Anyway I freeze the whites and when I am ready to make angel food cake I thaw them and use them for the cake.

  25. Thanks for this recipe. It was my first time to make leche flan. I didn't have the time (and the patience)to caramelize the sugar so I used molasses. I didn't get the famous dark caramel colored top but the texture was very very good. For a first try I myself am impressed. Thanks again :)

  26. Hi Manang Kusinera,

    I really love your cooking blog, it inspires me to cook more for my family. My eldest daughter likes leche flan so much and my mom used to cook for her but without the egg whites. Learning from your blog, I am gonna try it today and see how yummy it will go. I hope you don't mind if I use your recipe for my cooking website as well - http://joyceiracooks.com

    I'll post the outcome once I have cooked it :-)

  31. Hi Manang,

    Is the 1/2 cup sugar in your ingredients for making caramel or is it to be added to the mixture?

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  32. HI Cora,
    sorry for the late reply. Been busy and sick as well.
    Yes the sugar is only for caramelizing. YOu may add more if needed to make sure you cover the bottom of the pan.

  33. Hi! I made this today and it's currently inside the oven and has been there for almost 2 hours already. I used a 9-inch round pan. Do you think the pan size caused the baking time to be this long? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hi Anonymous,

    It shouldn't take that long...it might turn out to be like cake (will have holes and dry consistency) when it's done. I once forgot leche flan baking in the oven and got it out after 4 hours, it was like cake. Still tasty but not creamy.

    It still should be wiggly when you get it out of the oven. The custard continues to cook as you let it sit on the countertop. Then it sets as it cools.

  35. i gave this recipe one more try. i know now where i went wrong. the first time i tried it, i used 14 fluid ounce condensed milk and 15 fluid ounce evaporated milk which is more than 1 can of each of the milks. for the one i did today, i used exactly a can of each milk and added 1 egg (because the eggs we currently have are small). the flan came out creamy and yummy! thanks for the recipe! this is the most successful leche flan ever made in our house! haha

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Anonymous,

    The ones I use are 14-oz condensed and 12-oz evap. I also recently made leche flan, and our eggs are small, so I used 5 instead of 4.

    Well, thanks for your feedback! And I am glad you were able to troubleshoot, and did not get discouraged to try again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe! It's the first time I tried to make leche flan and it came out great! I became too impatient with caramelizing the sugar though so I added 1/4 cup of water. It still turned out okay. Not as thick and golden as it should be but sweet nonetheless.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi MoaM,
    Thanks for your feedback! You could have used the microwave to caramelize the sugar within 10 minutes. You might want to consider trying that next time, just make sure you use pyrex glass and oven mitts as you stir every 10 seconds once the sugar starts melting.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Manang,
    I love reading all your recipes and I have learned a lot from it...but it was so funny when I saw your leche flan recipe, it was so similar to my recipe that my friend gave me years ago (early 90's).This is one dessert that is always been requested by my friends over any party...I also have another version that I learned from my mom, but I like this particular recipe because I get to use the egg whites (and not waste it)...I thank you so much for posting all your baking and cooking recipes as well as cooking tips, it really helps us a lot...I got/learned some new ideas from you...THANK YOU, and God bless!

  50. Hi Ann, how was your leche flan?

    Hi MMR,When I tried to add cream cheese, I used only 3 eggs and 4 oz of cream cheese. I used the water bath methods, and baked at 295 deg F for one hour. Also, if you are going to make leche flan, chill first before you consume. When freshly out of the oven, (or steamer), it does smell so eggy.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh kaya naman po pala kasi I used 5 eggs and the whole 8oz crean cheese. Tama po kayo nilagay ko po sa fridge first then it was taste good and creamy but still not as good as your leche flan will do it again and do it over and over again till makuha ko yung kagay g sa inyo.thanks po

  52. HI Manang, I've invested some time looking for easy recipes that don't sacrifice taste or quality. This recipe is just perfect. A note to first timers: When I first made leche flan using Manang's recipe, I wasn't sure how to caramelize the sugar but I realized that adding the sugar slowly after some have already melted prevents the caramel from scorching! Thanks again for sharing! The additional egg works magic. :)

  55. I was told not to beat the egg yolks because you wouldn't want them to create bubbles. I really love eating leche flan. I was always mesmerize by how did the brown thing go on top. My mom made a leche flan before but it wasn't as perfect as the picture above. Anyway I'll try to make one myself with the help of your recipe. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Cali---
    That's right. That's why the blender's blades is better than beater. The beater will incorporate air to the eggs, but you would hardly break the egg to a homogenous mixture. Blender cuts into the egg, and as long as you use a pulse type of beating (3-5 second bursts only), you will create a homogenous mixture without aerating the mixture.

Hi Manang, I made your leche today and may i say...it's sooo delicious. it's really great that your recipe uses egg whites as well,so at least these are not wasted. the only problem i have is that my caramel cracked during the cooling process, hence when the leche flan was finished steaming, it was broken (but definitely still edible). i'm not sure what i did wrong and was hoping you could help me. thanx again

  63. Hello MK :D

    I read one of your FB friend's post using 3 eggs & 4oz cream cheese. Since my Mom has diet restrictions I made another twist.Instead of actual eggs I used 3/4cup Nulaid's ReddiEgg (=3eggs), 4oz light cream cheese, 1can fat free evap milk, 1/2can 50% less sugar-condensed milk + 4g Splenda. I could have baked it but I steamed it, improvised though (I put the foil-covered pan -w/c fitted perfectly- on the pot & just placed the lid on it). It's just okay for me considering it's a lighter version. I did make your recipe & that's what I'm looking forward to when I serve it tomorrow.
    Thanks for being an inspiration:)

  64. Hi manang! i need your help. I've tried your recipe and it worked perfectly! i have a question though, when I baked it, it took me an hour and 55mins. for pcs of lyanera.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Anonymous, I suppose that what you plan to do (use two racks, just swap after an hour) will be just what is needed. I cook my leche flan (whatever size, however many) up to the point that when I shake lightly, it jiggles like jello, then I take it off the heat and let it cool on room temp (to continue cooking on its residual heat) before chilling in the fridge. Merry Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  67. Emma, sorry I thought I answered your q already. I would think that the time of steaming would be about the same even for 8 llanera IF you have enough space in between para yung steam can really surround each llanera very well.

    ReplyDelete
  68. To anonymous with cracked caramel,
    I am not sure how it cracked that bad. Mine would crack too but it never affected the leche flan outcome so it remains intact. If the crack was too wide, maybe it was because the cooling was too rapid? Try heating up your pans underneath with hot water before you pour the caramel.

N notice ko po kc n mejo mtgal un cooking time n nk post s blog nyo. Normally it would just take me about 15-20mins to steam it. I use yung muffin foils as containers pr hndi n xa hassle if you want to serve small portions.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi Zangelie, mas maliit yata kasi yung lalagyan mo kaya mas maikli ang cooking time (parang muffins versus a loaf of bread, mas matagal yung loaf kesa muffin size). I have not tried to use muffin foils for my leche flan so it will be up to you to approximate the times of steaming. Moreover, I prefer baking in bain marie, that way, nakikita ko yung extent ng pagkaluto, kasi i-shake ko lang ang oven, pag nag-wiggle sa gitna yung flan na parang jello, luto na yun para sa akin. You can't just do that pag steam kasi me takip yung niluluto mo. So I leave it up to you to experiment.

    1. Basta magkakasya pwede. Takpan mo ng foil yung leche flan mo para hindi malunod sa tubig from condensation ng steam. Usuallyl 30 minutes.

      Pwede ring gawin mo parang doible boiler. Kuha ka ng pan na me tubig, patong mo yung leche flan dun at takpan mo in a way ng yung tubig hindi tutulo sa leche flan.

  81. hi.. i just made a leche flan last saturday using the yolks only and freezed the whites, until now it's there in the freezer.. i think your recipe is good as i can use the whites as well.. i'll try this one of these days maybe this weekend.. thanks for the idea and recipe.. :)

  82. i also do leche flan with the egg whites. not "nakakasawa"! Better not to waste the egg whites!

  83. hi! i plan on trying your recipe sometime soon. concern ko is, wala kaming oven so i'm thinking of using our turbo. have you tried that? and kailangan ko syang takpan ng foil para di mag swirl yung mixture since air ang gamit ng turbo, right? thanks! hoping for your feedback soon!

    1. Hi Pat, baka mas maige pa steamer or double-boiler style (marami ba ang gagawin mo?). Pero kung gusto mo talaga gamitin yung turbo (which I have not used for this purpose), just make sure super sealed ng foil and the heat is not too hot.

  84. Hi Manang,
    Thanks for posting this lehe flan recipe. My partner asking me to make leche flan, one of her fav.
    WE both liked the firmness, the taste-not so sweet, it is just right. And the caramelized sugar-the bitterness. yummmm....
    And she dont beleive that I used the whole eggs, i said "yes, that's what it is sa recipe ni Kusina ni Manang!"

    Thanks again Manang and more power!!

  85. Hi Manang,
    My sister's leche plan also included the whites, but instead of 4 whole eggs, she uses 6 eggs; 3 yolks only and 3 whole, it also tastes good..not so sweet too. I'll try your version, para may comparison ako, more power manang!!!

    1. HI Anonymous,
      that sounds good too. IN my choc whoopie pie recipes that call for 4 whole eggs in the batter, I replace naman three of them with 6 egg yolks, only because the frosting uses 6 egg whites, so for me to use up the egg yolks, I thought of using them in the batter. Walang sayang.

  86. hi manang,
    im just wondering...the packaging of condensed and evap milk seems a little off than what is called in your recipe....the big cans usually are 300ML for condensed and 350ML for evap...metric system po ang gamit dito unlike ung sinusunod jan na US costumary unit...should i compensate by adding more na lang since 14oz is 400ml?

    many thanks...im excited to try baking in the water bath method instead of steaming....plus im also a firm believer na sayang ang egg ehites....mabuhay ang no waste policy :)

  87. excuse my earlier comment...hahah....i answered my own question...i just added na lang....to make the full 14oz and 15oz...

    nukiing the sugar is the best idea everrrr....
    hahaha....kaso lang i dont know what went wrong hindi nag-amber ung sugar...i tried 2 more extra minutes...still the same...dapat ata tagalan ko pa....

    1. Hi Anonymous,
      Haha...naaliw naman ako sa comments mo...
      Anyway, I was just about to answer, but never mind.
      Re the sugar, I just eyeball when to stop once it starts boiling. When it turns amber, I might nuke several secs more to get to the brownness I want. Not too light and not too dark. But yours did not get to that point...I wonder why...Maybe next time you might want to consider the brown sugar+butter+cream combi for caramel (like the one I used on choco-flan cake), although I haven't tried nuking that.
      Where are you located?

    2. im here sa philippines po. the strawberry fields and sayote mountains of baguio....im eating the leche flan right now and its to die for...hahahha...yeah perhaps next time brown sugar would perhaps be the better option...and more time in the micro...sayang kasi may tirang white sugar so used I it....im just fighting the urge to go for a second helping....my brother succumed though....bahala na si batman daw kahit may lactose intolerance...he did not even turn the baking pan upside down...ate it from there...so might as well...

      will definite do a repeat next time using the leche flan cake na...since the flan is proven muy delicioso....im just thinking of ways to cut back the tamis ng konti...im so hyped and excited to make a repeat on my birthday...woot!

      baking is the way...no more steaming for me...baking at 11pm last night was all worth it...even though my mom was like what are you still doing with the micro and osterizer....

      pardon the lengthly blabbing...mayne its sugar high or maybe lav na kita pramis :) hahaha

  88. Hi ate, I've been making leche flan since I was 18 just for the love of it. I tried ur recipe because I dnt wanna throw the whites and use that many eggs.I must say it was super delicious and after 2 days in the fridge it's even yummier. I'm gng to make one again, thanks so much for sharing. I added a few drops of lime into the mixture, just out of habit hehe and I believe the pectin helps it become more solid..dnt knw if that's true though..Salamat again! xoxo

    1. Hi Anon, thanks for your feedback. I do find it getting better and better as it is chilled in the fridge, I prefer it about 3-day old in the fridge as it then becomes so compact and smooth, and less eggy in taste. I think that lime idea is good. Maybe then I won't have to chill it as long if indeed the pectin helps with the more solid consistency.

    1. Hi Tess, if you are familiar with the taste and texture of real cream cheesecake, then adding cream cheese to leche flan will approach that. Your leche flan will be more compact/dense (but still light), and yummy.

    1. Hi Rui, Maybe because you ate yours right after it cooled? That one on the picture had chilled in the fridge for 3 nights before I inverted and cut. Somehow the chilling and the wait makes the flan more compressed/condensed.

  96. Hi po!

    Ang sarap po ng hitsura ng leche flan sa picture! :) Hayaan nyo, gagawin ko po ito sa New Year :) [May plano na for Christmas eh, hehe.]

    Kung hindi po blender and gagamitin, paano po malalaman pag "homogenous" na yung mix? Mas okay po ba talaga yung sinabi nyo kanina na ipadaan sa cheesecloth kesa gumamit ng balloon whisk?

    Salamat!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Ana, Homogenous only implies na halong-halo yung mixture. Tama, mas maige na idaan sa cheesecloth kasi talagang "mababasag" yung itlog (better pa to kesa sa strainer kasi mahirap i-push yung egg white through the strainer). A balloon whisk will just push around the stubborn egg white unless you beat harder, in which case, it incorporates a lot of bubbles, which you don't want in leche flan.

  98. Hi Manang !

    You know I'm not a chef or a cook but I'm a food enthusiast. Well right now, I have been making leche flan as an extra income this season. My leche flan recipe was great. Pero I have some problems on the output of my masterpiece, Once kasi na maluto siya and excited ako na makita yung texture ng leche flan, I am disappointed pag nakikita ko na ma-bubbles yung paligid at loob nung leche flan. I want the creamy thing, Yung tipong buong-buo siya . Hope matulungan mo ako .

    Thanks and more powers !!

    P.S.

    Here is what i used:
    12 Pasteurized Eggs (6 whole egg; 6 w/o egg whites)
    2 alaska evap 370ml
    2 alaska condense 300ml
    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or a snitch of lime :)

    yan ..

    1. Hi po!

      Hindi po ako si Manang, pero what do you do to mix them all together? maganda yung sinabi ni Manang sa question ni Ana. Dapat, wag i-beat ng sobra sobra. you're just adding air to the mixture kaya may bubbles :)

      Diba ang chiffon cake po ib-beat ang eggwhite para fluffy? Tapos yun yung ihahalo sa batter ng cake mo? That's why po airy and fluffy ang mga chiffon cake, dahil sa air na naka-incorporate dun sa egg whites :)

      Delete
    2. Hi Ralph, tama ang sinabi ni Anonymous, at magandang example ang sinabi nya about chiffon cakes. Gamit ko ay blender pero pulse beat lang (tipong I press the button for 3 secs) and I repeat that 3 times or up to 5 times basta maganda na ang pagkahalo. The advantage is talagang basag yung yolk at egg whites kaya pino ang halo, but the pulse beating avoids adding too much air. It also helps pag slow and low ang cooking -- meaning, low heat lang, then take the time to cook (kung stove top, medium low heat, 30 mins; pag bain-marie method, which I prefer, 295 deg F for 1 hr). Another is, do not take out of the pan right after cooking. Let it chill in the fridge for at least one whole day. The cooling time lets the custard settle more so it becomes more compact.

  99. hi manang,

    can i use a handheld blender for this recipe?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Anonymous, it you are talking about a stick blender (aka immersion blender), I haven't tried, but it probably would work if you keep the blades under the liquid (that means you really have to use a tall cup). If you are talking about the handheld mixer that is very good at mixing cakes or egg whites, that is so not advisable, as that will encourage air incorporation into the custard. You don't want that many bubbles. The reason for the blender is that the cutting blades cut through the egg yolks/whites efficiently for a short period and will give you a very smooth mixture, so you won't have to push it through a strainer.

  101. hi manang! ano po ba ibang term sa pulse kasi yung blender namin walang pulse setting, only mix, blend and beat. can i use the beat setting? thank you!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Anonymous, yung "pulse" beat ay simple lang - ilang segundong on, tapos off agad. Bugso-bugso, kumbaga. Hindi tuloy-tuloy na beating, kasi pag tuloy-tuloy, mahahalo pati air. Pag bugso-bugso, mababasag lang yung egg white at egg yolks (parang hiniwa mo ng knife), at dahil mabilis ang blender, mabilis din ma-hiwa-hiwa nang pino. Kung matri-trick mo ang blender mo sa ganitong paraan, maige(yung halos mao-on na sa beat or mix or blend setting, pero hindi mo itutuloy; gagawin mo lang para mag-umpisa umikot pero ibibitin mo). Piliin mo kung aling ang pinakamabagal sa tatlo.

    7. Sorry ngayon lang reply ko. Nagka-problem sa internet nung gusto ko tong sagutin, hanggang nakalimutan ko na until now.

      Anyway, mukhang yung 245 degrees mo ay Celsius (I have never heard of an oven that low sa highest setting). That will mean that the highest will be around 473 deg F. Double check mo. Kung talagang 245 deg F yan, gumamit ka na lang ng steamer.

  103. Hi manang!
    I just tried ur recipe tonight. I was not happy with the texture:( may mga holes po sya and nung i tasted parang hndi sya creamy like what is in ur pic. Doea it mean that i overcooked pag ganun? Or should i wait after i chilled it.
    Okay lang ba na may mga bubbles pagka blender? Ksi kht na pulse gnmit ko, may bubbles pa din. Should i still use cheesecloth after i used blender? Should i remove the bubbles?
    I also noticed that my sugar got caramelized so fast and it turned amber after just 5mins(by cooking). Is it because i put my sugar in the fridge? I usually put our sugar in the fridge ksi para di langgamin hehhe.

    Hope to hear from u. Tnxx soo much

    1. Pag kinain mo agad without chilling, it's got the egg-y consistency, taste and smell...that's why I love mine really chilled (best after 3 days, without turning over). Parang it gives time to compact and be more dense (making it creamier), without the uyam effect of eggyolk-based flan.
      Me konting bubbles pag blender, but they rise to the surface and I just pop them, or the cover of the blender removes them while I pour into the pans. Usually there are less than 10. Sometimes I don't bother popping them.
      I don't know if putting sugar in the fridge makes a difference. But I love mine microwaved (after adding a little bit of water). You just gotta keep an eye on it after the first 4 mins.

  105. Hi manang! Thanks for blogging about this! All i can say is using whole eggs in making leche flan and making it come out creamy and yummy is utterly genius! I do have a problem though, i made this recipe four times already and the first try came out perfect in my opinion. My fam raved about it. My second try was overcooked as i forgot to set my timer in, third was a fail as i was too cautious this time and undercooked it, fourth came out too soft but i cooked it right. Im getting a bit sad as i cant make it perfect like the first one..your recipe calls for two laneras, so i made the fourth one one big batch and placed it in a round lanera..i cooked it for 34 mins..please help...

    1. Hi Kara, a big llanera for the mix that was meant for two would have taken longer to cook. But like I say in this post, jar your oven while looking in at the flan. If they jiggle at the middle lie jello, they are done. If they still appear liquidy (makes ripples from the sides to the middle like the tang commercial), they should still be cooked further. My cooking time here is for two round 8-inch pans in an electric stove. I myself will have to re-learn how to make this using my new gas stove.
