Leche Flan (Caramel Custard) is a popular Filipino dessert made up of egg yolks and milk with caramel or melted brown sugar on top. We usually serve this on special occasions like birthdays and fiestas. In my house, I usually make this even if there is no occasions.
This is how my family make Leche Flan. I’m pretty sure, every household in the Philippines, has their own way, to make leche flan. The secret of making a flawless and smooth flan is by straining the mixture using a cheese cloth to remove the excess roughness of the chalaza or the (White Cholesterol part of the egg). We just like ours to be really smooth and has no bubbles. In my option, the bubbles will change the texture and will ruin the taste of this special and yummy dessert. Unless you like it that way.
