Ingredients:  
5 eggs
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

CARAMEL

1. Place 2 c. sugar and 1-2 T. water in a nonstick skillet, and slowly melt over low heat without stirring. Shake the pan by it's handle to mix, but do not stir with a spoon. When the sugar has melted, pour into a 3 quart glass baking dish, coating the bottom.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour in the condensed milk, coconut milk, and vanilla until well blended, about 2 minutes. Pour the egg mixture over the sugar in the pan. Place the pan inside of a larger dish and set in the oven. Fill the outer pan with water to 1 inch deep.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the flan from the water bath, and refrigerate until cold, 4 hours to overnight.
To serve, run a knife around the edges of the dish to loosen the flan, then invert onto a serving dish.

Coconut topping

Melt a little butter in a saucepan and add coconut over low heat until toasted.

This flan is soo good, but the caramel is hard to do and sometimes takes more than one try to get it right.
