One bite of this delicious coconut caramel flan and you'll be imagining yourself in a faraway tropical land. The creamy flan custard is flavored with coconut milk and baked in a bain marie until set but still jiggly in the center. Shredded toasted coconut is the perfect garnish to sprinkle atop this not-too-sweet dessert.
The recipe below is essentially the recipe for a traditional flan, the only exception being the addition of coconut milk instead of whole milk or heavy cream. You can serve the dessert at room temperature, but it's yummiest and most refreshing when served slightly chilled. This dessert is popular with kids and adults alike, and the kids especially love the sweet caramel flan topping.
