I used 1/2c coconut créme coffee creamer, and therefore omitted the extra half cup sugar, milk and coconut. It provided enough coconut flavor, and there was ample sweetness from the condensed milk. I had to drink some milk to wash down all the sweet! The "caramel" was a failure. It didn't taste altogether burned, but it certainly didn't give my flan any flair. I baked in a 9" pie dish, but there was more milk mixture than space in my dish, so I put the remaining extras in a 9"square, and put that in a water bath since it didn't have caramel in the bottom. When I inverted the square, it didn't come out, Duh, so I cut it down the middle, and lay it in a plate with a spatula. The pie plate did invert easily. Between the two, they are okay, but because of the overcooked sugar, i did prefer the square.
