Delicious! I made the recipe exactly as described, although I'm not sure what happened to the sugar. After baking in the ramekins, the custard flipped out easy, but most of the sugar got hardened and stayed on the bottom of the glass. There was still a nice syrupy liquid that poured out all over the custard making it exactly like a flan, so maybe it cooked right. The hard sugar part did come out of the ramekin real easy in the dishwasher. I will definately be making this time and time again! Thanks so much!

Dh is the family custard fan and the resident caramel afficionado. He went nuts for this. I used the four ramekins but needed a full 55 minutes to bake it. Skipped the coconut.

Excellent custard, Kaarin. I put the coconut in mine only and topped with some fresh raspberries. I used two percent milk and a little ff half and half. Thanks for posting! Roxygirl

Wonderfully creamy and delicious! I omitted the coconut and used 4 ramekins to bake custard reducing the baking time to 35 minutes. Thank you, Kaarin for a wonderful recipe!

This was very good! I made as directed and used the coconut, although I think I like it better without because I like it smooth. Thank you Kaarin! It's been awhile since I made custard and I enjoyed it. :)

I put this on the table and my husband said "It's flan! You made flan!" and he was thrilled. I omitted the coconut and was worried originally because, after I carmelized the sugar, I didn't get it all around the bottom of the dish before it cooled. No matter, it worked out just fine. I used skim milk with no problems too. A nice ending to dinner. Thanks!

Delicious and a little different from the traditional custard we usually have. With the coconut and the caramelized sugar this seemed a bit like flan--which is a nice treat--with lots less work than the traditional flan. We will be having this again soon! Thanks for sharing!
