Our Coconut Pot de Creme recipe is made with Coco Lopez cream of coconut, fresh coconut and 10 egg yolks. Although the recipe specifies a 3/4 cup (about 6 ounces) serving size it is a very sweet, rich dessert so you'll probably want to keep the portion size smaller like 3 ounces at the most.
The pot de creme cup show is part of a set of 6 Limoges pot de creme cups.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Combine the cream, scraped vanilla, whole vanilla bean, and coconut milk in a sauce pan over medium heat. Bring the cream up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the cream for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and discard the vanilla bean. In an electric mixer, beat the yolks. Gradually pour the hot cream into the mixer. Mix until incorporated.
Strain the liquid into a pitcher. Fold in the fresh coconut. Place eight (3/4 cup) pot de creme cups or ramekins in a roasting pan. Fill the cups or ramekins to the rim with the custard.
Pour water into the roasting pan 1/2 way up the sides of the ramekins. Cover the pan loosely with foil and bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until set.
Remove from the pan and let the custards cool completely. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour. Garnish with whipped cream, chocolate shavings and espresso powder.
This is a pot de creme cup from France, it holds about 3 ounces.
