Leche Flan

It’s only every great once in a while that I make my Mom’s Leche Flan…and since it’s the Holidays and a few of my “Miami news friends” were doing a potluck, I decided to put on my baking apron!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Leche Flan is one of my all-time favorite desserts…growing up it was staple for every get together and family party!!

So, first you have to caramelize the sugar…

Next is the careful task of separating the yolk from the egg whites….must have SKILLS!! And I took this picture on timer >>> SKILLS!
