Leche Flan (Whole Eggs)

Leche flan..smooth, creamy, velvety leche flan, my all time favorite dessert.  It’s just eggs, milk and sugar and yet it’s one of the most delicious thing in the world, thank you for whoever came up with this dessert. 🙂

Kulinarya Cooking Club is featuring this favorite Filipino dessert this month.  I decided to make Gale Gand’s Mango Flan but I want to share with you too my favorite recipe.  (The flan featured in the photo is actually a mango flan too, I combined this recipe and Gale Gand’s to make it)

Traditional leche flan ( Creme Caramel) uses only yolks;there are so many recipes for leche flan; I’ve found a recipe that became a favorite of mine and been using since.  I like it because it uses whole eggs and yet still produce the creaminess and the taste that I love but to be honest it’s not as smooth and velvety but that’s okay with me at least I won’t be wasting egg whites anymore because no matter how hard I try, I do forget to use them.

My mom if I can remember correctly never uses chicken eggs in making leche flan, she always insists on using only itlog ng itik ( duck eggs), fresh from the farm which she says makes a whole lot of difference. I have to agree she’s right even though I don’t like duck eggs because I think it’s malansa  (a kind of fishy smell..not an accurate translation) when you cook it.   In my opinion though,  if you use fresh organic eggs whether from duck or chicken your egg dishes will taste so much better.

Anyways here’s the recipe ..hope you like it too!  😀
