How to make it
- In a saucepan, mix the sugar & water.

- Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum moulds - you can use any shape: oval, round or square.
- Spread the caramel on the bottom of the moulds.
- Mix well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla by hand or blender.
- Gently pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the aluminum moulds.
- Fill the moulds to about 1 to 1 1/4 inch thick.
- Cover moulds individually with aluminum foil.
- Bake for about 45 minutes.
- Before baking the Leche Flan, place the moulds on a larger baking pan half filled with very hot water.
- Pre-heat oven to about 370 degrees before baking.
- Let cool then refrigerate.
- To serve: run a thin knife around the edges of the mould to loosen the Leche Flan.
- Place a platter on top of the mould and quickly turn upside down to position the golden brown caramel on top.
- You can tell when the Leche Flan is cooked by inserting a knife -if it comes out clean, it is cooked.
