Floating Island Dessert

Floating Island Dessert is the ultimate decadent treat made with creamy layers of ube halaya, leche flan, and melt-in-your-mouth meringue. It’s the perfect holiday indulgence!

Hello, Kawaling Pinoy readers! I am Sanna, and I am delighted to be back here with a brand-new recipe.

Christmas and New Year are just around the corner, and we know what that means- food, food, and more food! We love to party it up whatever is the occasion, but since these are the biggest holidays of the year, let’s go all out with the grandest of desserts!

And when I say grandest of desserts I mean Floating Island Cake! A tri-layer masterpiece made with ube halaya, leche flan, and meringue, this ultra-special treat has gained popularity in our local food scene and is a must for any festivity.

Not only are the creamy layers of halaya and flan, and pillowy meringue pure bites of heaven, they also come together in an impressive dessert centerpiece that is as gorgeous to behold as it is delicious to eat!

How to Make Floating Island Dessert

I used the halayang ube and leche flan recipes on Kawaling Pinoy for the first and second layers of the dessert and I used the egg whites from making the flan for the top meringue.

The recipe makes 4 llaneras that are 7.5 inches long, 4.5 inches wide, and 2 inches deep.
