  • 10 pieces eggs
  • 1 can condensed milk (14 oz)
  • 1 cup fresh milk or evaporated milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Using all the eggs, separate the yolk from the egg white (only egg yolks will be used).
  • Place the egg yolks in a big bowl then beat them using a fork or an egg beater
  • Add the condensed milk and mix thoroughly
  • Pour-in the fresh milk and Vanilla. Mix well
  • Put the mold (llanera) on top of the stove and heat using low fire
  • Put-in the granulated sugar on the mold and mix thoroughly until the solid sugar turns into liquid (caramel) having a light brown color. Note: Sometimes it is hard to find a Llanera (Traditional flan mold) depending on your location. I find it more convenient to use individual Round Pans in making leche flan.
  • Spread the caramel (liquid sugar) evenly on the flat side of the mold
  • Wait for 5 minutes then pour the egg yolk and milk mixture on the mold
  • Cover the top of the mold using an Aluminum foil
  • Steam the mold with egg and milk mixture for 30 to 35 minutes.
  • After steaming, let the temperature cool down then refrigerate
  • Serve for dessert. Share and Enjoy!
