500ml white sugar
45ml water
1/2 tsp lemon juice
5 large eggs
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 tin unsweetened coconut milk
1 tbsp vanilla essence
Hot water, for water bath
Berries, for garnish
1) Preheat oven to 150 degrees C.

2) Place sugar in a small saucepan and gently add the water and lemon juice. Do not stir. Bring the saucepan to a boil over medium-high heat, without stirring, until the mixture turns golden brown. Divide the caramel among 4 ramekins, filling them 1/4 of the way up.

3) Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until combined. Pour the custard into the ramekins on top of the caramel.

4) Place the ramekins in a large roasting pan or baking dish and carefully pour hot water into the pan around them, 1/2 way up their sides, to make a water bath.

5) Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes until the flan starts to wiggle in the ramekins when gently shaken.

6) Remove the ramekins from the water bath and chill them in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving.

7) Run knife around the edge of the ramekins. Invert on a plate and garnish with berries; serve.
