DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare caramel base by putting 1-2 tbsps sugar on each linera and running the pans on the stove, using tongs to move pans over very low flame. It will take just a couple of minutes to melt the sugar into a rich, brown liquid.
  • Separate yolks. Remove all white as possible.
  • Add evaporated and condensed milk.
  • Mix mixture with a spoon in one circular direction, avoiding building of “foams” in the mixture.
  • Strain the mixture into lineras with a cheesecloth to remove the excess white part of the egg.
  • Cover the lineras tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Arrange lineras in a deep aluminum pan (ones used for roasting or those used for serving in buffets will do nicely) filled with water halfway of the lineras.
  • Add more water in the middle of the cooking time, if needed, to prevent burning of bottom.
  • Cook in oven at 375°F for around 30-40 minutes. The water-bath is more like “steam-cooking” than baking. Insert a toothpick in the center to check if done.
  • Cool in the refrigerator for a few hours.
