banana leche flan
Here's a simple and delectable Banana Leche Flan. So easy to make and loaded with banana flavor. Yes with real banana and not just extract from a bottle of McCormick flavor. I've been thinking of what else I can make use of the four overripe bananas sitting on our table. I've done different kinds of banana bread. I've baked banana bars, banana cookies, etc., but I haven't tried turning it into a flan.
I adopted this recipe from my Cream Cheese Flan and Caramel Bread Pudding recipes. They were one of the great desserts I've made so I knew this will be a good one as well. All I did was actually experiment using mg 4 large overripe bananas which was about 4 cups when mashed well. I used all of them and just added eggs, milk, vanilla and condensed milk. The only difference I made with my other flan recipes was I only used half of the can of condensed milk. Bananas are already sweet so why use the whole can right?
This recipe also uses whole eggs and not just the yolks like the traditional leche flan. What I did was whisk the eggs with the evaporated milk then add the vanilla and condensed milk followed by the bananas that I mashed really well. You can also use a blender when combining the ingredients but using a blender always results to a mixture full of bubbles because of of the eggs being mixed too much so I chose the manual method. I also strain the mixture to make sure the bananas are well pureed or incorporated with the mixture to achieve a nice and smooth flan.
The result? So good! Not overly sweet and you really need to drizzle those caramelized sugar on top before serving. Oh and one slice is not enough so I must warn you! Try this recipe and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!
