My Leche Flan Flop

I wish my leche flan looked like this one.....
I bought a can of condensed milk and saw a leche flan recipe. It sounded so simple I decided to buy 8 eggs, a can of condensed milk, 1/4 kilo white sugar, and 3 pcs of  small llaneras to complete the whole puzzle of making the master piece.
I felt excitement, I was so thrilled I hurried home to make THE LECHEN FLAN.

I started making the caramel without water and the white sugar and left it on the pan, and did my egg yolk separation and mixing the condensed milk.  After I mixed the egg yolk and the milk thoroughly I went to get the caramel and to my surprise I saw a stone like thing with the laddle immovable...tsk tsk tsk now what? I reheated the hardened caramel and placed it in the llaneras and poured the eggyolk mixture covered it with foil and the steamed for 30 minutes. It was a tense waiting moment,  I kept testing it using the toothpick to see if it was done. I tried eating one llanera and it was soso though it may not look like the one sold in restuarants but to me it tasted like one, hehehehehe. And in the morning, I had difficulty  removing the leche flan from the llaneras coz I realized I used very sticky caramel for that, I have to remove it from the top part of the flan coz it was really hard. The taste was soso also and \i have decided in my heart that I would make a better leche flan, I have another leche flan recipe and I just hope it would be good enough.

Rating for my leche flan: 3 ( 1-10 and 10 being the highest)

Wow leche flan just ate one this afternoon. I was told not to beat the egg yolks because you wouldn't want them to create bubbles. But you've got a different way of melting the sugar. I really love eating leche flan. I was always mesmerize by how did the brown thing go on top. My mom made a leche flan before but it wasn't as perfect as the picture above.

Naku! I know how you feel when trying out a recipe and end up with a not so good result. Haha! I have also not yet perfected making one, but still tastes good though. Probably because I love egg custards no matter what! xD
