It was very thin and did not rise to top of the pan. Taste was good, but consistency was too soft and wet. Thanks for trying to help me.

I make flan often (like, really often) and have used coconut milk successfully. I have found that the best ratio for me is about 3 - 3.5 cups (give or take) of milk / coconut / etc. to 4 large eggs. If I add additional ingredients (say, a cup of pumpkin) I also add another egg. My guess is that you had an overage of liquid to eggs and that made it runny. Try again! You'll get it!!!

Yes, they should be interchangeable. I think the end of your question cut off, did your flan not turn out as expected?
