Dessert is the last course of the meal; some people consider this as the best part. Well, who wouldn’t? I think that it is — especially if we are talking about Filipino Desserts.
Every time I think of sweets, Leche Flan always appears in my mind. Obviously, it is my favorite. I also grew up enjoying my grandma’s creation, which I think is the best Leche Flan recipe ever. What is your favorite?
During my travels, I make sure to sample famous desserts that each country has to offer. Some were good, while others need an acquired taste. At the end of the day, there is a part of me that still longs for Philippine sweets. Maybe I am just accustomed with our own food, or maybe there is really something extra ordinary about our desserts — I think both; sweets from the Philippines are really awesome.
If I will ask you to name at least ten of your favorite Pinoy sweets, what will they be? If in case you are curious, here are mine.
Here are 10 of my choices.
1. Leche Flan
2. Maja Blanca
4. Ube Halaya
5. Buko Salad
8. Cassava Cake
It is now your turn. What Filipino Desserts do you love most?

i really learn some filipino recipes and i like your cassava cake my friend like it
I’ve been using your recipes , specially your empanada ! Today, I’ll try your halaya. I checked some recipes from different people and I don’t like their ingredients at all. Some are too sweet and some food, they’re changing our real food/ingredients, lol. I love mostly all of your recipes ! And finally, I saw your real face at YouTube !!! You’re the BEST !!! 🙂
