How to make it

  • Oven at 350 degrees
  • Slowly heat cream and coconut milk in a medium saucepan till it just begins to bubble.
  • Whisk together the yolks and sugar until eggs turn a light yellow and the mixture thickens. Whisk in the vanilla, rum, and salt.
  • Slowly add the hot cream mixture while continuously whisking. Stir in the sweetened coconut.
  • Pour mixture evenly into 6 6oz ramekins. Place ramekins in a baking dish and add enough hot water to come about half way up the sides of the ramekins.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until custard is almost set. The custard will be mostly firm but still jiggle slightly in the center when tapped.
  • Remove from water bath and let cool slightly. Place in refrigerator and chill overnight.
  • Just before serving sprinkle 1 to 2 tsp of sugar over each custard. Place on cookie sheet and place in preheated broiler. Cook until sugar is a golden brown (about 3 minutes). You can also caramelize the sugar with a handheld propane or butane torch.
  • Sprinkle with toasted coconut if desired.
