Heart-shaped Leche Flan for hubby

Cooking for me is one important thing that every woman should know. Nobody was born with that innate skill but it is learned…..and loved. It’s one of the things that every wife or mother MUST do. A man who is married to a woman that can cook is one proud husband. I’ve seen that from my former colleagues (since I have  been employed in manufacturing companies  with men as majority of the population). During meal breaks, they are one proud husband to let the people know their wife prepared what’s in their brown bag much more if colleagues praise the dish that their wife cooked. I realized it’s like they have owned sport trophies for having a responsible better half who does not only take care of the kids but of the food on the table as well. That was a challenge that I took and hoped that my future husband will be proud of me too. With that determination, I strived to cook…with those simple dishes that my late mother taught me when she was training me in the kitchen.

It wasn’t easy. But I learned to love cooking when hubby is all praises with my dishes. Then he started requesting for certain dish. Can’t say no so thanks to my imagination and the internet for the recipes. At times, I just imagine how the dish was prepared and I do my version. So far, so good. With my number fan, I always feel satisfied in the kitchen.

Leche Flan for hubby on heart’s day

I am lucky to have him and he’s lucky to have me too.LOL. So here’s my heart’s day present to him…his favorite Leche Flan in heart shape. I have this homemade leche flan recipe that I’ve been keeping for four years after a number of attempts.

Homemade Leche Flan Recipe

Leche Flan is one of hubby’s favorite. I learned to cook this when he requested for it some years ago. It was a trial and error process for me until I got the mixture the we both love and posted about my homemade Leche Flan recipe in my first personal blog four years ago. I was giddy happy about my recipe but I still experiment on other mixtures. All were good enough but we still love the Valentine Leche Flan recipe that I posted before so I am stuck with that recipe. 

Almost four years after, I found the post about the homemade Leche Flan recipe. I haven’t posted that recipe here so might as well re-post my recipe of the homemade Leche Flan that hubby loved so much.

Ingredients:

  • 10 egg yolks
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 small can evaporated milk

Procedure:

  1. In a bowl, mix well all ingredients (I usually use manual mixer but you can also use fork)
  2. Once done, place in a flan molder (llanera)
  3. Steam for 20-30 minutes or until cooked (check if mixture solidified)
  4. Remove from heat and let it cool before putting in the fridge.

 

Note: You can pour small amount of caramelized brown sugar in the molder before pouring the leche flan mixture in it. That makes the golden brown color of the flan and pour in the remaining syrup when removed from the molder.
