1 Bake it instead. 

We’ve been extolling the virtue of baking, rather than steaming, the leche flan and we can’t say it enough! If you have an oven, take advantage of this baking trick so you can achieve a super smooth flan that looks almost as smooth and silky as it will taste.

2 Add it to cakes. 

If you have heard of leche flan cakes, you know what we are talking about. Also known as custard cakes, these cakes are two layers of deliciousness: a light, delicious, and moist cake and a creamy, silky leche flan all in one fabulous and irresistible dessert. You basically make two kinds of batters and place both if these into one cake pan. The stunning result is a cake that will satisfy everyone who loves cake and everyone else who love leche flan.

4 Mix it with niyog. 

Did you know that the coconut macaroon is basically a leche flan but with niyog mixed into the batter? It is! Just think about it: it’s got eggs and condensed milk, too, but it also has the added lift from the egg whites and bulk from the coconut. The batter isn’t as liquid as a leche flan batter but that’s because these have more texture.

5 Stir in flavors. 

We know the classic leche flan is a fantastic dessert but we think it’s perfectly okay to make it different every once in a while! For this tweak, you can use any number of flavorings! Try using a flavored milk instead of just plain evaporated milk, add fruit purees, or stir in any of the extracts, essences, and food coloring with flavorings that are available in the baking section of your local supermarket!


Leche flan doesn’t have to the usual thing every time! Whether you’re thinking of experimenting with flavors or just want to try something new, these leche flan recipes should help you achieve that and maybe even find a flavor that you might actually like.
