From an amazing combination of cake and curd comes this unique Caribbean Flan. Concentrated sweetened milk blended with milk and eggs creates a thick creamy base to which freshly grated tropical coconut is added. Liquid caramel acts as a sweetener that gives the flan a somewhat chewy consistency. It’s perfectly simple to make and takes 1 hour to bake in the oven, but it tastes like a weekend getaway to the Caribbean.


  • condensed milk (sweetened or unsweetened)
  • milk (25 cl.)
  • 3 eggs (separated)
  • grated coconut
  • artificial sweetener (optional)
  • caramel


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 300F.
