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.
