1 Can Condensed milk
1/4 Cup Granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla or lemon/lime rind

For The Sponge Cake
4 Egg Yolks
1/2 Cup Granulated sugar
1/4 Cup oil
1/4 Cup Milk (evaporated/fresh)

1 Cup Cake flour
1/4 Tsp Salt

For The Meringue
4 Egg whites
1/2 Tsp Cream of tartar
1/4 Cup Granulated sugar


1) Prepare 10x2 Cake pan. Melt the 1 cup sugar you can melt it straight to the cake pan or you can use heavy pot like I did. Melt the sugar until it turn into caramel. If your melting your sugar using pot then once the sugar turn into caramel transfer it right away into the cake pan and set it aside.

2) Make the Flan. In a large bowl whisk in the egg yolks and the sugar until its just well combine DO NOT over beat. Add the condensed milk, evaporated milk and the vanilla or rind stir and strain it into the prepared baking pan and set it aside.

4) Make The Cake. Beat the egg yolks and the sugar until its pale yellow color, add the ube and beat until its well combine.

5) Combine the milk, oil, ube flavoring and the food color. Add it into the egg yolks mixture.

6) Combine the cake flour, salt and the baking powder. Sift in to the wet mixture and beat until its just combine.

7) Make the meringue. Combine the cream of tartar and the egg whites and beat until it is frothy. Once it is frothy gradually add in the sugar continue to beat until you reach the stiff peaks stage.

8) Add the meringue into the batter in 3 addition and mix using the cut and fold method.

9) Pour the batter over the flan and bake it in a water bath 350 oven for about 1hr and 15 minutes half way through baking tint it with aluminum foil.

10) After baking let it cool down for about 15-20 minutes before transferring it into a serving dish or a cake stand run a stainless spatula around the edges of the cake and flip it upside down. Put it inside the fridge so the flan can set before serving.
