This is one of the easiest flan recipes ever. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, pulse until smooth, pour the custard into ramekins, steam in a water bath in the oven, and chill. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting the two hours for the flan to chill so you can enjoy it.

Ingredients

For the caramel:

  • 1/4 Cup sugar

For the custard:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 Cups coconut milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Toasted sweet coconut flakes, optional, for garnish

Directions

For the caramel:

For the caramel, heat 1/4 cup of sugar with in a small pan on medium heat until the sugar starts to become amber in color then remove from the heat.

For the custard:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

For the custard, put all custard ingredients (besides the toasted coconut flakes) into a blender and give a whirl for 30 seconds. 

Pour the caramel into your custard cups or flan dish then pour the custard mixture after.

Put the custard cups in a large oven pan that you can create a water bath.  Pour boiling water carefully inside the oven pan around the custard cups.  Careful not to get water into the custard cups. Let the flan steam in the oven for 55 to 60 minutes. 

Allow the custard to chill for 2 hours. 

Take a knife and slide it around the edge of the custard cup to loosen the custard from the cup.  Turn the custard cup over onto a plate and garnish with coconut flakes.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
