I saw this yesterday on Pikko's blog, Adventures in Bento Making. I bought a can of coconut milk a while back for a recipe, and never got around to using it. When I saw Pikko's post, I decided to give it a try. The directions said to cook until thickened, but I didn't cook it enough. You're supposed to be able to cut it all in squares - but only the middle section of the pan could be cut. The rest stayed soft, like a custard.
I have to admit, we didn't care for this all that much. I think if I'd added vanilla, it would have been more like a pudding. The flavor just seemed a little off - and I'm sure it's because it was something so different from what we're used to. I'm told this is a traditional dessert at Hawaiian Luaus, but since I've never been to one, this was brand new to me. As I've always said, I'll try anything once!
If it makes you feel any better, the recipe I used tasted "off" too. I guess not all recipes are created equal and I'm waiting for my cousin to send me the one she likes! :)
