Of the many desserts that have graced tables at family reunions and Christmas parties, flan is one of the most popular and most loved.
In fact, it even ranks first on my list of personal favorites.
Flan is a custard dessert known for its milky, sweet taste and spongey, gelatin-like texture. It is made with milk, eggs, and a whole lot of sugar. Flan is popular in places with Spanish, Hispanic, and Latino origins, which makes it no surprise to find its popularity in Filipino cuisine. Almost like panna cotta or the Dutch vla, Leche Flan’s smooth consistency makes for an altogether satisfying bite.
And if you don’t have an oven? That’s not a problem either! This Cheesy No-Steam Flan recipe doesn’t require any baking time in the oven. That being said, it will still come out just as deliciously.
- Flan mold (M) 14×9.5×3.2cm or plastic container clamshell
- Sugar (1 tsp each mold)
- 3 whole large eggs
- 1 can condensed milk
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 25g clear jelly powder
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 3 cups of water
- quick melt cheese
Step 5: Refrigerate overnight before you serve. For the toppings, you can add grated cheese on top. (optional)
Use a Blender: To ensure a smooth and well-mixed flan mixture, use a blender to combine the eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract. This will help achieve a silky texture.
Strain the Mixture: After blending, strain the flan mixture to remove any lumps or air bubbles. This step contributes to a smoother final texture.
Prepare Clear Jelly Carefully: When making the jelly mixture, follow the instructions on the clear jelly powder package precisely. Be sure to dissolve it completely in water and cool it before adding it to the flan.
Chill Thoroughly: After assembling the flan, make sure to chill it for several hours or overnight for the best texture and flavor.
