i tried one of the coconut flan i made on thursday. i went in with low expectations, figuring without the added sugar content of actual milk, the flavor would be off. but i was genuinely surprised, much better than i expected. it definitely had a sweet coconut taste, similar to coconut hard candy. the texture was very different too: normal flan is smooth, like cutting into tofu. coconut flan texture is similar to ricotta cheese. it also seemed firmer, but still soft enough that a spoon can easily carve out bites. i consider this a success and will showcase this new recipe for thanksgiving in a few weeks.
