What Are Leche Flan Donuts and Where Can You Get Them?

by Meryl Medel

In case you haven’t heard of this new trend yet, leche flan donuts are essentially brioche donuts filled with leche cream and topped with good old Pinoy favorite leche flan. It’s quite the treat for your sweet tooth. The original leche flan donut comes from Kora, a Filipino-owned bakery based in New York. Unfortunately, flying to the US is difficult right now with all the travel restrictions. Fortunately, a lot of local home bakers and bakeshops have tried their own hand at this Pinoy dessert with a twist. Check out where you can get these leche flan donuts now.
