10 Well Loved Filipino Desserts

Dessert is the last course of the meal; some people consider this as the best part. Well, who wouldn’t? I think that it is — especially if we are talking about Filipino Desserts.

Every time I think of sweets, Leche Flan always appears in my mind. Obviously, it is my favorite. I also grew up enjoying my grandma’s creation, which I think is the best Leche Flan recipe ever. What is your favorite?

During my travels, I make sure to sample famous desserts that each country has to offer. Some were good, while others need an acquired taste. At the end of the day, there is a part of me that still longs for Philippine sweets. Maybe I am just accustomed with our own food, or maybe there is really something extra ordinary about our desserts — I think both; sweets from the Philippines are really awesome.

If I will ask you to name at least ten of your favorite Pinoy sweets, what will they be? If in case you are curious, here are mine.
