Blanc-manger/coconut flan is a typical recipe from the French West Indies, Guadeloupe and Martinique. I love it! It is fresh, tasty, and light! So if you have guest and you want to serve them a nice desert without ruining your diet, this is the perfect recipe!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Ingredients (for 6 person):
- 1 tin of condensed/evaporated milk (380 gr)
- If the condensed/evaporated milked is not sweetened, add 150 gr of caster sugar, otherwise you don’t need it.
- 4 eggs
- 1 litre of milk (preferably fresh)
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar
- 150 gr of cocounut flakes
Separate the egg yolks from the eggwhites. But the egg yolks in a bowl and mix them with the condensed milk, the milk, the vanilla sugar, the cononut flakes (and the sugar if the condensed milk is not sweetened).
Beat the eggwhites until stiff, then add them gently into the coconut dought.
But the mixture into a dish and cook the coconut flan into the oven thermostat 180 degrees for around 45 minutes. To know if the flan is ready, stick a knife into it. If the knife stays clean, the flan is ready, otherwise leave it to cook for a few more minutes.
Tip: Try to spread some caramel on top of the flan! I know, it is less good for your diet, but it is very tasty!
