Original Way How to Make Leche Flan

Leche Flan is the top dessert in the Philippines. The dining table won’t be complete without it especially during celebrations such as parties and town fiestas. I remember the Leche Flan that my Lola Belen makes when I was still living in Las Pinas. It really tasted so rich and heavenly. Everyone in our clan always request her to prepare it during special occasions.  I’m  lucky because my wife knows how to do a good one too. This is actually her recipe. If I did it my way, you might be having Leche Flan that tastes like Egg Pie instead.
