coconut custard

  • In a small pot on low heat add in heavy cream, butter, and two egg yolks. Continue stirring and turn up heat slowly to medium low, still stirring add in sweetener, liquid stevia, blackstrap molasses or sugar free maple syrup. Continue mixing for another 10 minutes until it thickens
  • Note, after it is finished it will be a thick texture but it won't be custard like allow to cool or place in refridgerator for quicker cooling. Custard will be thick enough to spread when it is fully cooled.
  • Mix in coconut before spreading


Toasted coconut instructions:

In a sheet pan spread the coconut out in a very thin even layer. Some will overlap you can't help that. On a low heat such as 250-300 F, 250 I would say would be better toast the coconut. About every 10 to 15 minutes give the coconut a stir around in the pan until you start to see browning. Now browning is very important because once it browns it will burn quickly. Once you see browning check every 3-5 minutes until you have your desired golden look.
