Combine the syrup with coffee in a saucepan, bring to boil, and simmer until the surface is covered with frothy bubbles, and the syrup turns dark brown. Then, divide the caramel among ramekins and refrigerate them.
Next, whizz the silken tofu in a food processor until smooth.
In a pot, whisk the tofu with milk, erythritol, vanilla, and vegan gelatine, and bring to a boil.
Leave the pudding to cool down for 15 minutes, covered, before pouring it in the ramekins over the harden caramel base.
Wrap the tins with cling film and refrigerate them for at least 1 hour.
Finally, run a knife along the ramekin edge to loosen up the flan and then turn it upside down on a dessert plate.
