"Tastes like an island -- but in a dessert. Has a better texture than most flans. Best flan all my friends, even ones who HATE flan texture, have ever tasted!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook gently, without stirring, but shaking occasionally until the sugar has melted. Continue cooking until the sugar has completely melted and turned golden brown. Pour into a large round glass baking dish. Spread the caramel evenly over the bottom of the dish, then set aside to cool for 15 minutes before proceeding.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, cream of coconut, condensed milk, and pineapple juice until thoroughly combined and smooth. Pour the egg mixture over the caramel in the baking dish. Place a kitchen towel in a large roasting pan, and set the baking dish on the towel. Place the roasting pan into the preheated oven, and carefully fill the roasting pan with water about halfway up the side of the flan dish.
  4. Bake until a knife inserted in the center of the flan comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  5. Remove roasting pan from oven, and allow the flan to cool sitting in its water bath, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate the flan until thoroughly cold, at least 2 hours. To unmold, run a knife all around the edge of the flan to loosen the sides. Place a serving platter on the dish, and quickly flip the pan over to remove the flan onto the platter. Spoon any liquid caramel from the baking dish over the flan, and allow the caramel sauce to pool around the flan. Sprinkle with shaved coconut, and refrigerate until serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • The colder it is, the thicker the texture will be. It won't have that funny egg texture that most restaurant flans have.
  • Editor's Note
  • Look for cream of coconut in the Hispanic food section of the grocery store. It is not the same as unsweetened, Asian-style coconut cream.

Delicious! Cant cook it all the time, but definitely worth the wait! Can substitute honey for sugar instead. Simply spread honey on bottom of baking dish like you would the sugar! Enjoy!

Thought this was a fun recipe - and surprised that it actually turned out for me without any difficulty! I had a bottle of pina colada mixer left over from a punch-making event, so used the who...

Did not change anything.

This is delicious! I didn't have pineapple juice so skipped it, but I'm sure it would be even better. It was pretty simple to make and turned out perfect! I'm not big on sweets and didn't find t...

Was a little hesitant to make this because I have never made flan before. Made it exactly as written and everyone loved it!! I made a double recipe and used individual serving cups. It wasn't...
