Lucuma Leche Asada

Lucuma Leche Asada

A quick, easy and delicious dessert.

  • Total Time: 2 hours
  • Yield: 8


  • 1 cup of sweetened lucuma puree or 1/4 cup of powder lucuma with 1/2 cup of granulated
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the caramel:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water


  1. For the caramel: In a small pan, combine sugar and water. Place over medium heat and allow to boil. It’s a good idea to ensure the walls of the container are wet so that sugar does not crystallize on them later. Allow to simmer until a pale to medium caramel. Keep an eye on the pan because it tends to burn quickly. When it’s the same color as tea, it’s ready.
