Grannymar's Blog. She does not have a food Blog but Monday is 'Food Monday' and she always has an interesting recipe. Good old fashioned uncomplicated food of which I am so fond. I love baked custard and when I saw this some time ago I just had to make it. The use of coconut milk instead of cream is lovely. It makes it a very light dessert. It looks pretty and so quickly prepared it would be perfect for a dinner party. I think the addition of a crispy thin shortbread biscuit would set it off perfectly.
Coconut Custard Serves 4
Preheat your oven to 150.C/300F/Gas 1-2
3 ozs light brown sugar
8 fluid ozs coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Place all the ingredients into a food processor and process until smooth or mix together with a whisk in a bowl by hand.
Transfer to individual lightly buttered ramekin dishes
Place the ramekin dishes in a deep sided tin and place in the oven.
Pour water into the tin to come approximately half way up the side of the dishes.
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the custard has just set but has a little wobble.
Present as your imagination takes you.
