Directions:
In a saucepan, mix the sugar & water. Bring to a boil for a few minutes until the sugar caramelize.

Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum molds - you can use any shape: oval, round or square. Spread the caramel on the bottom of the molds.

Mix the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and vanilla by hand or blender.

Gently pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the
aluminum molds. Fill the molds to about 1 to 1 1/4 inch thick.

Cover molds individually with aluminum foil.

Steam for about 20 minutes or bake for about 45 minutes. Before baking the Leche Flan, place the molds on a larger baking pan half filled with very hot water. Pre-heat oven to
about 370 before baking.

Let cool then refrigerate.

To serve: run a thin knife around the edges of the mould to loosen the Leche Flan. Place a platter on top of the mould and quickly turn upside down to position the golden brown caramel on top.
