Expert Tips

For larger molds, add 20 minutes to the cooking time.

Coconut flan is delicious and easy to make. The taste and texture are very delicate. I decided to use heart shaped molds to go along with the Valentine’s Day theme, but you can use whatever mold you have available.

Directions

  • 1 For the caramel: Pour sugar, water and orange juice in a pot over medium heat and let the sugar dissolve completely until it turns golden; don’t stir.
  • 2 For the flan: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 3 In a blender or with an electric mixer, beat the eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, coconut milk and shredded coconut.
  • 4 Add a little of the caramel to the bottom of the molds you will use, let harden and then pour the flan mixture.
  • 5 Prepare a water bath with a deep baking pan. Place the molds inside this pan and add enough hot water so that it comes about half way up the sides of the molds. Bake for 45 minutes or until the flan looks set; test it with the tip of a knife to see if it comes out clean.
  • 6 Once flan is ready, cool it in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, heat up some water in a large frying pan that can fit the molds. Turn off the heat and place a mold in the water so the caramel can melt a little.
  • 7 Carefully run a knife along the sides of the mold to help release the flan. Place a plate where you will serve the flan over the mold, quickly flip it over and the flan should release from the mold.
  • 8 Serve and enjoy!
