Ube Flan

Ube flan

by Miko Aspiras

Serves 2 – 3




  • 100 g ube peeled
  • 8 pieces egg yolks
  • 1 can (14 oz) condensed milk
  • 250 g evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp ube extract with deep purple hue


  • Cream
  • Tapioca pearls


  1. Cut up the ube into approx. 1-inch cubes and place in a steamer pan. Steam for 6 to 8 minutes or until the ube becomes soft.
  2. Place the steamed ube in a blender. Pour in the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks and ube extract. Blend until smooth.
  3. Strain the mixture and pour into a bowl. Make sure to remove any bubbles that have formed.
  4. Pour the mixture into small clear glass cups. Fill cups until 3/4 full.
  5. Place the cups on a steamer pan and steam for 30 to 45 minutes. The center of the flan should still be jiggly when lightly shaken.
  6. Remove the flan from the steamer and allow to cool to room temperature completely. Place inside the chiller.
  7. Serve cold with cream and tapioca pearls (optional).
