  • 1⁄2 cup plus 6 tsp. coconut sugar, divided
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2⁄3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2⁄3 cup shredded sweetened coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place 6 ramekins in large roasting pan.
  • In a large bowl, beat 1⁄2 cup sugar, egg yolks, and whole egg.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add cream, coconut milk, and shredded coconut; bring to boil. Whisk in egg mixture. Pour custard into ramekins, dividing equally.
  • Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cups, about 2 inches. Bake 40 minutes, or until custards are just set in center. Remove from water; cool, and chill overnight.
  • Before serving, preheat broiler and arrange ramekins on a baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar evenly over each custard. Broil until sugar browns, watching closely, for about 1 minute; chill for at least 1 hour.
