These Creamy, Dreamy Leche Flan Dessert Combos Are Worth The Work
There is something unique and unforgettable about eating into a dessert and discovering there's a surprising ingredient in it that makes it over-the-top delicious.
From cheesecakes that have a delicious blueberry topping as well as an abundant amount of fresh fruits stirred into the creamy cheese to chocolate cakes enrobed in a silky ganache only to find that there's thick caramel sandwiched between each devil's food cake layer, that moment of surprise is priceless.
When it comes to leche flan, we all know what to expect: a luscious and silky steamed custard made from two kinds of milk and egg yolks, swimming in a burnt sugar liquid caramel that tastes just slightly bitter. It's an irresistible dessert that is popular no matter when and where it's served!
That's why, with the addition of leche flan to these recipes, you know these dessert mashups are going to be incredibly delicious and hard to resist!
Get ready because here are some of our most sinfully decadent recipes that combine leche flan + another dessert to make you crave dessert right now:
1 Ube Leche Flan Cupcakes Recipe
Cupcakes are one of life's happy treats. These essentially mini cakes are just like the full-sized version but made in such a way so that there's no need to slice it nor is there any need to share your little cup. Ube cupcakes are, by now, a pretty normal flavor but what ube cupcake can boast of an entire layer of leche flan instead of frosting? This one definitely can, and it's just as divine together as you would hope it to be.
2 Avocado Leche Flan Popsicles Recipe
The green orbs of silky avocado can be made into many different desserts as well as savory dishes! (Avocado toast, anyone?) While you can drizzle condensed milk on slices of avocados and eat it as is for dessert, we say boost your level of satisfaction for this decadent fruit, and make these avocado popsicles topped with generous chunks of leche flan instead.
3 Leche Flan Cheesecake Recipe
We love leche flan. What's more we also love leche flan cakes. We have made numerous leche flan cakes, from the basic or classic leche flan cake recipe version to the addictive version coffee-flavored chiffon cake topped with leche flan.
However, there is still one leche flan cake recipe that we think will elevate your understanding of what a truly decadent version should taste like: this Japanese cheesecake topped with leche flan. It's extremely soft, sweet, and just tangy enough to offset the sweet-bitterness of the leche flan and its caramel. This obra maestra of leche flan cakes could be your next favorite cake ever.
4 Leche Flan Macaroons Recipe
Before the French macaron came around, the macaroon we all knew was made with niyog (grated coconut), condensed milk, and egg whites. It still is a classic local bakery good that never disappoints.
Now imagine those same coconut macaroons made more luscious, more sinful. It's made with the same ingredients as a leche flan but uses whole eggs instead of just the yolks, has more sugar, and the entire concoction is flavored with a little vanilla. What you get is a cross between a macaroon and a leche flan, and it's just as delicious as either.
6 Leche Flan with Ube Halalya Recipe
How many of you have dived into their halo-halo glasses, spoon first, just to fish out and eat the leche flan and the ube halaya before mixing everything together? That's okay! With this recipe, there is no need at all to go looking for that indulgent pairing of leche flan and ube halaya because this leche flan dessert mashup recipe marries the two in perfect harmony. You get the same amount of leche flan to ube halaya with every spoonful!
7 Ube Leche Flan Suman Recipe
The kakanin is really every Filipino's dessert. It's the dessert that we can truly say is ours! We have invented ways to use the rice in so many ways that one more kakanin recipe is not surprising.
This kakanin recipe, however, may be one dessert that you will fall in love with if you love leche flan, ube halaya, and suman. The suman is stuffed with it so every bite will be a surprise burst of flavor. Will you bite into more ube than leche flan or the other way around? It's a roulette of flavors that's not unwelcome, we say.
8 Leche Flan Puto Recipe
When it comes to classic dessert mashups, the leche flan puto may be the one that started it all. It's definitely Filipino with the combination of leche flan on top of a tender little puto or rice cake. Best of all, both require steaming so just put the two mixtures together for that perfect bite.
9 Leche Flan Macapuno Pie Recipe
Another undoubtedly Filipino ingredient is the macapuno. Macapuno are gelatinous coconut strands that come from a special kind of coconut. It's delicious when sweetened and when combined into a pie that also includes leche flan, you're going to want to eat this down quick.
10 Leche Flan Milkshake Recipe
Not in the mood to eat your favorite dessert mashup? Then, you have to learn how to use a blender and make this delectable glass of milky concoction that you can slurp through a straw! This is what happens when a leche flan meets a thick milkshake!
