½ cup sugar
2 cups whole milk (do not use skim)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl whisk the eggs until well combined and creamy.
Gradually add the sugar and continue whisking until it's completely dissolved.
Then pour in the milk and keep whisking. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Fill the mixture into ramekins and place them into a big enough oven-proof dish.
Place the dish into the oven and pour boiling water in it until the glasses or ramekins are covered half of their height.
Depending on the size of your glasses or ramekins bake the Leche Asada for 30 to 60 minutes.
To check if your Leche Asada is baked properly, pierce one carefully with a wooden skewer. If the skewer stays clean and no "custard" is sticking to it, the Leche Asada is ready.
Serve cold and enjoy!
