At last! The dessert! By now I think there had been enough wine served to make us forget to take a picture of this! Take my word for it, this is so easy - so incredibly good! This will be the "go to" dessert around here for a long time!

Coconut Pumpkin "custard" Brulee

Yield:
6 - 2/3 cup servings

Time:
10 minutes to assemble
40 minutes to bake
Total time: 50 minutes

Ingredients:
1 can Coconut Milk
1 cup canned packed pumpkin (not pie mix)
3/4 cup sugar
4 large eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coconut extract
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Cinnamon sugar (for garnish)

Equipment:
6 - 1 cup oven proof custard cups

Directions: (Click on any image to enlarge.)
1 Preheat oven to 350F.
2 With a mixer or whisk, beat Coconut Milk, pumpkin, sugar, eggs, salt, extract and nutmeg until well mixed. Fill each custard cup with 2/3 cup of pumpkin mixture and lightly sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar.
3 Make a water bath by filling a 9" x 13" baking dish with 4 cups of hot water. Place each filled custard cup in baking dish.
4 Carefully place baking dish in oven and bake for 35 - 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center of the custard comes out clean.
Note: For an extra fancy presentation sprinkle each 'cold' custard with a teaspoon of sugar. Melt sugar with a torch or under a broiler until just golden. Watch the heating process carefully, as the sugars can turn from golden to burned very quickly. We didn't do the cinnamon - just plain sugar. I'll try the cinnamon/sugar on the ones I have left tonight.

A funny story: I sent Lorraine a tie-dyed flour sacking dish towel and matching bar rag. She thought the dish towel was a scarf and wore it to work around her neck. Everybody just loved her new "scarf!" I later sent her a matching rayon "scarf" so she didn't have to tell the people at work it was a dish towel By-the-way, I promised never to tell anyone this story, but have told everyone I know
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

What a fun event and everything looks wonderful! I've never seen a banana flower before and would probably have to travel a long way to find one.
