Ingredients:
12 egg yolks
2 cans condensed milk (14 oz.)
5 cans small evaporated milk
2 cups fine white sugar
2 tablespoon vanilla or
teaspoon grated dayap rind (optional)

You will also need the following:

Llanera

Steamer

Strainer

How to make the Caramelized Syrup :

* In a stainless steel pan, dissolve 3/4 cups of sugar, add 1/4 cup water over medium heat, do not stir, just swirl the pan gently, caramelize in low heat if you don't want it burnt. Pale brown means sweeter and too dark means bitter. When you have achieved the desired color, pour the syrup in the llanera and make sure to coat all the parts of the pan.

How to make the Custard:

* In a mixing bowl, combine all the egg yolk, condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar and vanilla. Use a whisk to mix thoroughly but gently to prevent bubbles from forming. Remove any solids by using a strainer.
* Pour the mixture in the llanera and cover it with an aluminum foil, so that the moisture from the steam won't come in the pan as it will become watery.
* Steam Cook for 40-45 minutes, or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
* Remove the llanera and let it cool at room temperature. Then refrigerate for several hours before serving.
* To unmold the leche flan- run a sharp knife around the edge and carefully invert it unto a platter or serving dish, let the caramelized sugar flow over the leche flan.

This recipes makes 4- 5 llanera of Leche Flan.
