A great stand-by dessert I always keep a few tins of these tinned ingredients in the cupboard then as long as I have some eggs, I am good to go.
I made this recipe twice, the first time as written and I could barley taste the coconut. So the next time I made it I used 2 1/2 tsp. coconut extract & 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and it was much better - the coconut taste is perfect. I made it for a party of 20 and everyone said it was PERFECT. It takes 1 hr. & 20 minutes to cook if you use 1 large dish. Easy to make and definately a keeper! - 30 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
suggestion: I made another flan recipe and added cream of coconut (sweeter and creamier than coconut milk)+ low fat sweetened condensed milk + 2 eggs + 4 egg whites + 2tsps vanilla extract - 14 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This flan turned out very well. I followed the recipe exactly except I add 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract. I think the almond extract enhanced the coconut taste and made it delicious. - 10 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
