Leche Flan

Leche Flan is a classic and all-time favorite Filipino dessert. It is not only popular in the Philippines but also around the world especially in Europe. The word Leche Flan is from the Spanish word flan de leche, which means milk flan because it is mostly composed of milk and eggs.

Fiestas and any celebration here in the Philippines will not be complete without the presence of a Leche Flan. Nowadays, there are a lot of variations of this dessert like Coffee, Chocolate, etc. but classic will always be the best.
