gelatin flan

here’s the “fake” leche flan i was telling you about. it’s actually a gelatin flan because it’s got more gelatin than it has more eggs and milk (actually i don’t think it has eggs). it’s yellow because they (my aunts) use the yellow gelatin bars (do you remember those?) which provide a hardier texture to the flan instead of the smooth, silky type produced by gelatin powder. anyway, it’s usually langka flavored but this came in plain vanilla… so i had to pair it with a fruit, and bananas weren’t too bad with it.

    i saw the photo before i saw the title of the post and i thought “why is he pairing bananas with scrambled eggs?” LOL!

    except for the tiny square i get whenever i order halo-halo from a restaurant in NJ, i haven't really had any kind of flan in a long time. i do remember the gelatin bars; they're sold here, too. one of these days, i'm gonna try my hand at making leche flan, with the caramelized base.

    ha.ha. poor flan, mistaken for scrambled eggs 🙂 that will actually happen if you don't temper the eggs beforehand (if you're actually doing leche flan with eggs, of which there is none in this case). btw, we always use itik (philippine duck, not mallard duck) eggs for leche flan, mixed with regular chicken eggs. they make for a tastier flan.
