Leche Asada is super easy and quick to put together. This recipe makes about 6 small ramekins or one large (1 1/2 quart) for family-style eating. You may want to set the custard in a water bath to make the cooking process more gentle. This will produce a very creamy, flan-like texture. Even without this step, this makes a great – dare I say – weeknight dessert.
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350F
Crack 6 eggs into a large mixing bowl.
Add sugar and milk.
Whisk to combine.
Strain all the icky egg stuff out.
Much better! Now, pour into individual ramekins or one 1 1/2 quart ramekin.
Bake for 30-40 minutes in the small ramekins or for 1 hour in the large. (Setting them in a water bath will make them creamier).
Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon if desired… and serve chilled, with a warm smile.
