Even though I call it flan because it's baked in a double boiler, its texture is more like a cake, but without flour. This recipe is from my mother in law but I made some changes to it , of course I wouldn't trust her completelly cause it could be a sabotage plan from her =) My mother in law is also brazilian and she has great recipes and great ideas so I like to listen to her tips once in a while (or thrice in while, actually). She is a big fan of the blog and keep track of all my recipes, show my videos to her friends and always make a "blog session" in her house to promote her daughter in law (me). She tells me things she ate and made so I can get some inspiration. The only thing is that she doesn't like very elaborate recipes, she prefer to keep it simple and I like to make some fancy stuff sometimes .Well... nothing is pecfect, she calls me her secretary and makes me do a thousand favors for her even from a distance.
This tapioca flan is dedicated to my lovely beautiful mother in law that I love from the bottom of my heart.
1 cup granulated tapioca
450g coconut milk (one can)
3 cups whole milk
395g sweetened condensed milk (one can)

1 tbsp unsalted butter (at room temperature)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
plus: 9 1/2 in baking pan and a bigger one that fits this one inside for the double boiler
