Baked Milk Custard | Leche Asada

Serves 6-8

Leche Asada is super easy and quick to put together. This recipe fills 6-8 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.

Ingredients:

6 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups milk

Method:

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.

    Thank you for posting this recipe. I have never been able to make the custard of my childhood memories and this sounds like my grandmother’s recipe. I’m crossing my fingers and giving it a try….
