Something must be wrong or missing...this tasted terrible. Not sweet at all! Missing condensed milk or something? I had to throw out the pans and wasted all those ingredients. Sorry, unless I did something wrong.

Hello.

How many inches should the pan be? Also would baking spray be okay to grease the pan? Thank you.

well its coonut cream which adds to its consistency.but you can def use evaporated milk.however it will then be traditional flan.whuch is great anyway.
