1 1/2 cups
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
fresh shredded coconut
This flan is delicious. I prepared it two days ago, but I made a couple changes: Instead of using regular milk, i added one cup evaporated milk and a can of coconut milk and it was great!
Advice: Be careful for not over cooking the sugar for the syrup, it may get bitter.
Very very sweet. Be careful not to overbake.
God, that flan was good!!!! My family loved it!!! Only I substituted the evaporated milk with the same amount of coconut milk.
This was so easy to make that I was suspicious. However, I served this to a dinner party of 8 people and it was fantastic. It tasted fabulous and the texture/consistency was perfect. I served with a dollop of whip cream and some fresh quartered oranges and dark chocolate on the side. Even the guests who do not normally like dessert were raving!
I was looking for a recipe to replicate the coconut flan I had while in Costa Rica. This recipe came very close! I didn't do the sugar layer, only the flan itself. Maybe next time, I will do the entire recipe as described. My husband and co-workers all agree this is a good recipe!
This was fantastic! I used fat-free sweetened condensed milk and splenda inside the flan while using real sugar for the carmelized part. I baked it in ramekins in a pan of water. The texture was perfection and the taste was wonderful! Even my egg-boycotting daughter loved every bite!
When I returned from Costa Rica this year I HAD to find a coco flan recipe. This IS IT!!! So easy and absolutely delicious..This is a girls party favorite!!!
I didn't like it but everyone else liked it in the house. It didn't last more than a day! I think it's because I am not a chocolate lover. Be careful when putting the chocolate cake mix on top of the flan. You have to put it on very gentle in order to keep both layers seperated.
