Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 can evaporated milk -- undiluted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or coconut milk diluted with water)
 

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread 1/2 cup sugar evenly over bottom of 8-inch round baking dish. Heat in oven 30 minutes, or until sugar is melted to a golden-brown syrup. Remove from oven, let cool 15 minutes (or until hard) While you wait, in medium bowl, beat eggs well with electric beater. Add 3/4 cup sugar, the evaporated milk, coconut milk, and the vanilla. Mix until the sugar is totally dissolved. Pour this mixture over the hard sugar in the baking dish. Place in a shallow pan so that you can pour water up to 1 inch around the baking dish. Bake 1 hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool before putting the baking dish in the fridge, then refrigerate well. To serve, slide a sharp, thin knife around the edges of the flan; put a serving plate over the baking dish and invert. If the flan doesn't slide out immediately, let it sit upside down for 10 or 15 minutes and as the sugar warms and dissolves, the flan should slide onto the serving plate easily. Serve as is or decorate with fresh fruit. Notes: While it varies in flavor and presentation, flan or baked custard is a popular dessert in many Caribbean islands.
