  • How to Make Coconut Custard and Spices:

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