I was craving flan but didn't have ramekins so I came up with making it in muffin tins.

Most of the time home cooks use 4 egg yolks and 4 whole eggs in making Leche Flan (commonly known as Custard Pudding with a sweet caramel on top). This is to make the pudding stiff and smooth.

Do not throw away the 4 egg whites separated from the yolks. Here is a simple recipe where you can cook it the same way as the Leche Flan. Aside from the coffee flavor the consistency and texture differs as it is more spongy than the custard pudding.


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 1


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp coffee
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar


  1. In a llanera, melt the sugar over low heat.
  2. Use spoon to stir sugar repeatedly until it is caramelized. Set llanera aside.
  3. Beat the egg whites and pour in condensed milk.
  4. Add 2 drops of vanilla extract.
  5. Then the coffee. Stir until coffee is fully blended.
  6. Pour mixture in llanera.
  7. Cook in the steamer for 30 minutes.
  8. See if it is fully cooked by inserting toothpick or fork. When it comes out clean, your coffee flan is cooked.
  9. Chill for 20-30 minutes and serve.

This coffee flavored flan is a delicious change up to the traditional custard. Coffee lovers will dig this delicious dessert!

Flan is a delicious, rich treat and can be made using ingredients most people have on hand.

Plate with flan.

I'm looking for an easy, delicious flan recipe that I can make with ingredients I already have on-hand. I don't have sweetened condensed milk, and most of the recipes I have seen use that ingredient. I do have evaporated canned milk.

Are you sure that it's not Flan? I found a recipe for "Far Flung Flan." lol That is as close as I've gotten so far.

It simply must be Flan. Perhaps you think it's called Flung because someone came up with it as an inside joke name when a person didn't like it and Flung the Flan ;-) That's something I would do because I hate custards ;-) LOL!

Read this and then just Google flan recipes, caramel custard recipes or creme caramel recipes and there are oddles of them so just pick the one that suits you best:

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but is the one I use.

Leek and Cheese Flan

1 pie crust (1/2 package)

2 large leeks, washed and sliced thin

1/2 cup butter

3 large eggs

3 ounces milk

3 ounces sour cream

6 ounces cheddar cheese, grated

1 pinch salt

1 pinch ground nutmeg

1. Set oven to 400 degrees

2. Line a 9 inch pie pan (or flan tin) with pie crust.

3. Saute leeks until soft, season with black pepper and cool.

4. Whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Add salt and then half the cheese and leeks to this mixture.

5. Pour into pie pan and sprinkle with rest of cheese. Grate nutmeg over, place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until brown.

Because our family is milk/cheese intolerant, any recipe with cheese might not work for us. However, at the natural foods market this week, their sample table included the best recipe you might also enjoy since you are searching for one with leeks:

Apple-sausage slices steamed with tomatoes and leeks galore. It was so very good that I plan to try this for us. I forget to BEGIN with onions, leeks, or garlic, which are SO good for us. I also forget that

cooked tomatoes might turn to mush if not watched, but that they, too, are VERY good for us and so easy to serve up. Good luck and God bless. : )

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 1 cup of the sugar in small heavy saucepan; cook on medium heat until sugar is deep golden brown, stirring constantly to create a caramel sauce. Pour into 9 inch round pan...

Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar in a heavy saucepan; place over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly until sugar melts and syrup is light golden brown. Pour syrup into 6 custard cups; let cool. Combine milks in a medium saucepan, and heat until bubbles form around edge of pan.
