Leche Flan ( Caramel Custard )

Leche Flan is a very popular desert in the Filipino community. Although there are only few key ingredients. It requires few tricks in order to produced a good Leche Flan. The version I prefer is the "no egg white version", only "pure egg yolks".  It is creamy and delectable.. no bubbles. This is a very easy recipe so why not give it a try.
