Ingredients

  • 2 - Cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tsp - whole Cloves
  • 1 tsp - ground Nutmeg
  • 1 cup - water
  • 1 cup - Cream
  • 1/2 cup - soft dark brown or dark palm Sugar
  • 1 cup - canned Coconut Milk
  • 3 - eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 - Egg yolks, lightly beaten

How to Make

  • Preheat oven to a moderately slow 160 degree C.
  • Place spices, water and cream in a medium pan. Bring to a simmering point and reduce heat to allow spices to flavour the liquid.
  • Add sugar and coconut milk, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Whisk eggs and yolks in a small bowl to combine. Pour the spiced milk mixture over the eggs and stir to combine.
  • Strain into a jar; discard the whole spices. Pour custard mixture into 6 small dishes, each of about 1/2 cup capacity.
  • Place in a baking dish, pour in hot water to come halfway up the sides. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Insert a knife in the centre in one of the custards - the mixture should only be slightly wobbly.
  • Remove custards from baking dish. Serve hot or chilled.
