Leche Flan Puto Recipe

One thing that I dislike is food waste because I know that my husband works hard for it so sayang ang pera kung may matatapon lang. So in our house, we really eat leftover food, I take note of the expiration date and I make sure that we will use or eat whatever we will buy in the wet market or grocery. 

Last Wednesday, I made meringue. Since this recipe only needs egg white, I need to keep the egg yolk. I was supposed to cooked Leche Flan Puto on the same day pero di na kinaya ng powers ko.

I baked brownies, made meringue, cooked our meal, chores plus the deadline of my blog post so I immediately checked how long I could store the egg yolk. When I learned that I can store it for 2-4 days (fridge), nakahinga na ko ng maluwag or else mag-omelet na lang ako. 

Well, I could make my life easier by cooking omelets but the truth is, I want to use my new silicone molder. I asked my husband to buy this for me when he went to Singapore, two weeks ago. Hehehe! I hope my husband won’t get tired of going to IKEA. 

Anyway, the first and last time I ate Leche Puto was two years ago, I bought it at Noel Bazaar at Filinvest Tent. So yesterday, I tried to make my own Leche Puto or Leche Flan Puto. Since I’m a fan of pancake mix, I used it again for my puto.  

Leche Flan Puto Recipe 

2 egg yolks 
Half a can of condensed milk 

1 medium-size egg  
2 tbsp oil 
3/4 cup water  
1/4 cup sugar 
1 250g Maya Hotcake Mix 

For Leche Flan 

1. Prepare your steamer. 
2. Mix egg yolks and condensed milk in a bowl. 
3. Pour the egg mixture in silicone cups (puto molder) 1/4 or 1/3 full. 
4. Place the cups in the steamer and steam for 8 minutes. 
5. Remove the cups from the steamer. Set it aside.

For Puto 

1. Beat the egg. Add oil, water, sugar, and hotcake mix. 
2. Mix the ingredients and put the batter in puto molder with leche flan.
3. Place the molder in the steamer. Steam for 10-15 minutes depending on the size of your molder.  
4. Remove the cups from the steamer. Let it cool. 

Note: If you are not using silicone cups, grease the puto molder so it would be easy to remove the puto flan.

It is so easy to cook but it took me a while to finish it because I only have a small steamer. From this recipe, I was able to make 13 pieces, enough for a family of three. I’m so happy with my finished product. My son who is not fond of puto has no choice but to eat this because he wants the leche flan. Win-win situation.

  1. Gustong gusto ko gumawa neto pero hindi ko pa din nasusubukan. I love leche flan din kasi. Hmm pwede pala ang pancake mix, mukhang madali lang.

    1. Yes, easy to make. I always use pancake mix because it is perfect for family of three.

  2. I really want to make this. I have been craving for this the previous months, I wanted to make one, but my pregnant state made me too lazy to do it. =) I'll be doing this soon after delivery. =) Your recipe seems easy, I might follow it. haha =)

    1. I feel you, it is better to eat than cook when you are preggy. Congrats!

  3. All along, I thought it was difficult to make these delightful leche flan puto. I would even order and spend much when I could even make them at home. A little imagination is needed same with resourcefulness. thank you for sharing this. bookmarking it now so I will not forget.

    1. True, I thought it was hard but I can make it at home pala. :)

  4. wow! 2 of my faves in one! Sarap naman nito! Puto lang alam kong lutuin, tapos ung ready made pa ang mix! haha.

  5. Wow! I have all the ingredients at home, parang it's a sign that I need to make these too. I recently made leche flan naman for the first time and had leftover egg whites. I made icing naman out of it :)
