I have this flan in the oven right now. The batter tastes heavenly! I used coconut extract (1 Tablespoon) as I didn't have any coconut-flavored rum in the house, and didn't really want to face any stores on Christmas Eve. I also added 2 Tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons of vanilla, simply because I like a really strong flavor.
The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, well 2 reasons actually, and I may come back and modify later, but the first is I haven't actually finished it or eaten it yet, but so far, by all accounts it is shaping up just beautifully! My ONLY problem is that the amount of flan mixture is much too much for my 9-inch round by 3.5-inch high baking dish, and I had to make a second batch of caramel and divide it into 2 separated flans....Maybe this is just my experience but the mixture filled my dish to the brim, and I was afraid of it being too thick, and spilling over, so I used a 2nd pan and divided the mixture to make 2 flans. :) Thanks for the recipe!
