The fewest of ingredients whip up a mouth watering dessert

The flan makes the simplest of desserts, a delicate beauty. Coconut flan, quite like the caramel custard, comes with a sheet of fragile caramel on top. Underneath it is the rich flan with the flavour of coconut milk, along with a dash of vanilla. Apart from the time for oven cooking, the flan doesn't pinch your time at all. A classic dessert to finish any meal.
