Guess who’s creating a huge mess in the kitchen, knows she’s only probably wasting all the precious ingredients but doggedly wants to finish it so she can have dinner at 10pm? 😂 me!
the recipe is nothing complicated. Just simple custard which i intend to surprise mama with (since she’s staying in El Nido most of the time now) at tomorrow’s trip.
What looks so simple on Google and You Tube tutorial turned out to be delicate process lol and i’m getting nervous by seconds now 😂 but determined to see it done (disaster or not).
Lesson learned: If you’re trying your hand on some cooking, the best way to start is not 8pm 😂
What the tutorial said is basically to mix 12 egg yolks with condensed and evaporated milk. Put it in a pan with sugar (for caramel) in it, then steam for 30 minutes.
The result i’m waiting for right now is mix to harden (well, maybe have the appareance of “cooked” 😂😂😂
Wish me luck!!!
I’m gonna post the end result maybe in about an hour. If not, maybe at 4am (jk). I hope not, i’m super hungry the raw egg and milk mix is looking delicious now 😀
Be back in a few…!
UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! (After two days!!! Sorry, connection, as always, was slow)
(Lol first imperfect LECHE FLAN! It’s supposed to be really smooth like this 👇👇👇
My mistake is 1. ) i should’ve waited until the sugar melted into caramel-y like goodness before putting in the milk and egg yolk mix.
Also, the 2. ) “frothy” soft top is because in included the egg white.
Like ze Bf said (he’s a very talented chef, btw) 😉 “patience is required.”. Mmm admittedly, that’s not one of the qualities i possessed but don’t tell him😂😂😂 . Next time i’ll listen
This one ☝☝☝ i saved for mama and, SHE LOVED IT!!! said it’s perfect. Lol that’s how i know she love me so much 😂. Apparently, mom’s have a very special tastebuds too, as to not offend their offsprings when they present a half cook egg and milk concoction on a Monday afternoon.
