Why We Love This Recipe
Quick and Easy – This recipe is so simple and looks so fancy!
Easily converted – It is easy to convert to a dairy-free custard by simply substituting cream with coconut cream. Use coconut sugar if you would prefer to use natural sugars for a paleo custard flan.
Versatile – add extracts or cacao into the custard to flavour however you please.
The ingredients to make this sugar free custard flan are simple
- Sukrin Gold Syrup – for us Aussies there is no real substitutes available to us that are a low carb sweetener. However, for those in the US you can also use Vitafibre syrup or Fibreyum.
- Cream – thickened or heavy cream
- Vanilla extract
How to Make It
Cook the caramel ingredients for 4 minutes in the microwave. I use a 750w microwave. Or simmer gently over moderate heat on the stove. Cook until the caramel has thickened. Divide between 2 x 200g ramekins.
Note: The caramel can be cooked for up to 7 minutes to make a firmer caramel for slices or protein balls
To make the keto custard mix the cream, sweetener, eggs and vanilla. Pour it into the ramekins gently over the caramel.
Place the ramekins into a baking pan and fill the pan with boiling water until halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Remove the ramekins and set them aside to cool. Refrigerate overnight. Run a thin knife around the edge of each dish. Turn out onto a plate and serve.

Hi, this looks amazing! However, it looks like Sukrin doesn’t sell the Gold Fibre Syrup anymore. I’m in Australia as well. What could you suggest as an alternative? Would the Sukrin Gold Syrup be the same?
Really enjoyed this -very easy and very yummy. Thank you
I’m about to make this. Do you serve it hot or cold?
love, love, love this recipe! made this last week for my birthday! Am a filipino-australian and what attracted me to cooking this is it reminds me of leche flan – Philippine version of creme brulee and it’s hit the spots (in my tummy)! am now buying the ingredients to make this my potluck contribution for a friend’s party this weekend!
