COCONUT FLAN

Coconut Flan - Easter Dessert Recipe on Epicurious
Adapted by Carmen Ortiz of Baking is my Zen

Yield: Makes 12 servings
Active Time: 30 min
Total Time: 2 hours

INGREDIENTS:

CARAMEL:
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

FLAN:
3 1/2 cups whole milk, divided
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 large eggs
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut (I do not add it to milk mixture.)
3 tablespoons dark rum

Topping: Coconut Flakes (I add it on top of flan instead of in the milk mixture)

Equipment: 12 (4-ounce) ramekins

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit with rack in middle.

  1. PREPARE CARAMEL: Add sugar and water in a small heavy saucepan cook over medium heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved.
  2. Boil, without stirring, swirling pan occasionally so caramel colors evenly, until dark amber.
  3. Immediately pour into ramekins and swirl so caramel coats bottom of each, then put ramekins in a large roasting pan.
  4. PREPARE FLAN: Combine 2 cups milk with remaining flan ingredients in a blender until smooth, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir in remaining 1 1/2 cups milk.
  6. Pour mixture into the ramekins.
  7. BAKE FLAN in a water bath. Bake until just set but still wobbly in center, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  8. REMOVE ramekins from water bath.
  9. COOL slightly on a rack, about 15 minutes (flan will continue to set as it cools).
  10. BEFORE SERVING, run a thin knife around each flan, then invert onto plates.

Note: Flan can be made 2 days ahead. Chill in ramekins, uncovered, until cool, then covered.

Stopped by Goffle Road Poultry Farm in Wyckoff. Purchased a chicken and took a few photos. Stacy allowed me to take photos and helped me with my chicken purchase. She was very friendly and educated me of all the animals as we walked by their cages. Namely, I took a tour of the place. It was fun.
