A reinterpretation of a classic dessert my mother used to make when I was young. I love the fluffiness of this flan, perfectly contrasted with the sharpness of the apples. The coconut milks adds another very pleasant flavour dimension. 🙂
Flan de Maçã e Coco / Apple & Coconut Flan
6 apples (cored, pealed and chopped in chunks)
50 gr of caster sugar
2 drops of vanilla essence
1 can of condensed milk
1 can of coconut milk
A knob of butter to grease a baking dish
Pre-heat the oven at 180 ºC.
Butter a deep baking dish and place the chopped apples in it. Set aside.
Whisk the eggs with the sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the condensed milk, the coconut milk and the vanilla essence and nix well. Transfer into the baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and high. It should wobble like gelatine when ready.
Serve warm with a drizzle of cream 🙂
