This recipe is perfect and is from Puerto Rico is my personal recipe and I am so happy to share with you, please try this original recipe but you can vary according to your taste, for example: You can use coconut extract instead of vanilla extract if you want a more intense flavor of coconut. You can also change the condensed milk for coconut cream. Remember that when I say in ingredients: coconut milk you need not confuse coconut cream with coconut milk. Coconut cream is pre-sweetened coconut milk, coconut milk is just coconut milk does not carry direct sugar. The names can get with these Coconut Milk at the supermarket.

This is excellent recipe you will try. Custard is the same like flan, but flan is a word use in french language and spanish too and custard is the word used in english language, remember the flan concept come to the France gastronomy. I used two word for title because theres some people who know with different word but is the same meaning that is the reason I put the word in parenthesis

Please indicate the exact size of the pan you should use for the recipe. I am a novice baker and I want to make this for my friend's party and I don't want to screw it up with the wrong pan. The ingredients are expensive so I want to get it right the first time. Thanks!
