I’m always on the lookout for desserts sized for two. This rich, comfy custard is smooth, easy and just right for my husband and me! —Lee Bremson, Kansas City, Missouri


  • 2 tablespoons sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch ground allspice


  1. Divide coconut between 2 ungreased 6-oz. custard cups. Drizzle with caramel topping. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients; pour into custard cups.
  2. Place a steamer rack inside a large skillet. Pour water into skillet until it comes almost to the top of the rack. Place custard cups on rack. Bring to a boil; cover and steam until a knife inserted 1 in. from the edge comes out clean, 10-12 minutes.
  3. Remove cups to a wire rack; let stand 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cup. Unmold flans onto dessert plates; serve warm.
