How To Make Suman With Leche Flan

  • 1 Prepare a steamer. Alternatively, preheat an oven to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C and prepare a water bath if baking.
  • 2 Make the leche flan: In a 6-inch aluminum cake pan, add sugar. Place it over low heat and melt and caramelize it. Set aside and let cool completely.
  • 3 In a large bowl, combine yolks, sweetened condensed milk, and evaporated milk. Mix gently to prevent bubbles. Pour into the cake pan with the caramel. Cover with foil and steam until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove the lid to cool slightly before removing it from the steamer. Set aside to cool completely. Chill until ready to use.
  • 4 Meanwhile, make the suman: In a small saucepan with a lid, add soaked malagkit rice, water, sugar, and salt. Place on the stove heat over high heat. Cover. Bring to boil, and lower heat to simmer until cooked through. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Once rice is cooked, set aside to cool until just warm.
