One of my favorite family desserts is Agar Flan. Just like my Grandma’s Leche Flan, this dessert is a staple during family gatherings. While it has been a long time since my grandma prepared this sweet dessert, my younger sister P has perfected the recipe.
It’s important to use gulaman bars when you prepare this! Those powdered gelatin mixes won’t give you the same results. You can mix in some fruits when the gelatin has slightly set, but I prefer it this way — rich and creamy with shredded buko. Mmmmm.
Maymee’s Agar Flan
Melt two bars gulaman in 5 3/4 cups boiling liquid (P uses combination of water and buko juice, but you can use just water or any liquid).
Remove from heat. Mix in 2 cans condensed milk.
Stir in 1 cup shredded buko (optional — but I highly recommend you mix this in for added texture and flavor!).
Pour into mold.
Cool slightly before chilling in ref for at least 5 hrs.
