Coconut Flan

I made this dessert for our Cinco de Mayo dinner. I've made it before without the coconut milk but with evaporated milk instead. I loved it even more with the coconut milk. For this post, I made one personal flan for photos, and one in a larger 7" dish and that one took like 1 hr 25 min to bake. Go ahead and try this dish for any time, it's very easy and delicious!

Coconut Flan

1 cup white sugar

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt sugar until liquefied and golden in color. Carefully pour hot syrup into a 9 inch round glass baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in condensed milk, coconut milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with sprayed aluminum foil. Place flan dish in a large roasting pan and fill with water half way up flan dish (water bath).
Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. Let cool completely.
To serve, carefully invert on serving plate with edges when completely cool.

This looks fabulous. I remember years ago a department store dining room served these at lunch time. I must try. Please share what you used to make the individual serving. Could you put them in individual serving dishes. Can't wait to try.
