  • Son of Grok's Banana Flan

    Ok, all you recipe hoarders, I need your help. Son of Grok went offline and I need his banana flan recipe for my primal pecan pie. I know at least one of y'all had to have printed it out, so HELP!

    not sure if this is of assistance but i was looking at custard recipes of recent and his banana custard is mentioned here. dont know about the flan but i guess it would have the same filling.

    I like the Son of Grok banana "Caveman Custard" recipe. In my head, I call it "1-2-3 custard" because it requires one can of coconut milk, two bananas, and three eggs (along with a dash of cinnamon).

          i have no clues on cook times as my oven is gas and it is in centigrade so i just cook and hope for the best. custards i usually do a little cooler than a roast and just keep an eye on it. maybe 160 deg C. altho it has to lump it at 180 deg C if i am cooking something else lol you can usually tell by smell and how set it is but i would start looking after about 30 mins maybe.

            yogurt is an old old olde food- fermented and great for weight maintenance and gut health. Put some in your flan and "grok" away.

                i got mine from a second hand shop and i use them all the time. i have been in fact thinking about getting more. they are great for doing parts of recipes and portioning. plus they kinda look cool, the kids like them and they are easier to fit in the fridge than a big bowl.

                  Mine came from my father. The hotel he works in still had serveware leftover from a restaurant that went belly up about 15 years ago. That's where all my serveware came from. That's why it looks so classy yet utilitarian: it came from a restaurant.

                    yes we love classy but utilitarian. awesome way to describe how to dress lol i have a question. how bananary does this taste? i have some very ripe bananas and some open coconut milk and eggs and i was going to try making some. i am guessing the flavour changes when it is hot vs cold a fair bit?

                        It does taste a little bananay, but not overly so. Granted the first I made it was as a pecan pie experiment, so my predominant flavor was sweet, and pecan.

                          I made this last night using Thai Kitchen regular coconut milk and 2 small bananas. DH, DD and I all thought it tasted like banana custard with the slightest hint of coconut. Delicious (and super easy), but not what we were expecting. May try just one banana next time.

                            i had a whole stack of coconut coffee creamer left as i just cant have it in coffee right now. i did have good intentions. so i used that with 2 bananas and 2 eggs. or maybe 3 eggs. i cant remember. it is in the fridge now so i will taste some later.
