If you've been looking at my recipes, you'll have noticed I'm not into 'glam' desserts or cooking. I love homey fare, things that put a smile on my family's face. This recipe qualifies. Don't forget the ice cream or whipped cream.

This was lovely. I grated fresh coconut instead of using dried. I may use half the sugar next time, then sprinkle the remaining half over the top to make a crisper topping. Halve the recipe if only cooking for three people - this wasn't as nice the next day.
