Leche Flan with Whole Eggs
Leche Flan with whole eggs made easy with a simple hack on how to caramelize sugar in the microwave. It uses whole eggs, not just yolks, so there's no waste!
Servings: 6 Servings
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 6 eggs
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
In a clear, microwave-safe bowl, combine water and sugar. Stir well under sugar is completely dissolved.
Microwave on high for about 4 to 5 minutes or until color changes to honey-gold. Immediately pour into the ramekins or llaneras.
In a bowl, gently whisk eggs until there are no streaks of white.
Add condensed milk and stir until combined. Add evaporated milk and stir until well-combined.
Add lime zest and stir.
Using a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth, strain mixture.
Pour into prepared ramekins. Cover ramekins with foil and arrange in a wide, oven-safe dish with about 1-inch of water (water bath).
Bake in a 375 F oven for about 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of custard comes out clean.
Remove from oven, allow to cool and refrigerate to set. To serve, turn flan over on a serving plate, ending with caramel on top.
