This has potential but the coconut milk is overpowered by the butter flavor. I think I would sub evaporated milk for the coconut, and add some pumpkin pie spices, such as nutmeg or ginger to give it some added zing. It IS a cross between a cake and a custard as stated. Soft in the center and a bit crunchy about the edges and top. Because of the amount of butter, I would only make this as a special treat, but may try again for the holidays, with the spices as mentioned. Made for ZWT 7.
