Reviews for Individual Flans
"This is nothing short of miraculous if you are a flan addict - and we are. Living in Mexico this is the "go to" dessert. I also make it as a Creme Brulee. Just omit the caramel and coconut - steam as directed. Remove from streamer, cool then chill. Sprinkle with Mascabado sugar and torch or broil until melted. Top with a few raspberries or strawberries if desired."
"very tasty , similar to coconut custard minus the crust. I placed mine in custard cups sat them in a water bath 1/2 way up the sides of the custard cups 350 degrees 45 minutes, did not use the steamer rack"
