There seemed to be a lot of potential with this recipe however it just didn't turn out the way I wanted it to. The flavor was good but the addition of the egg whites to the mix made it taste eggy and have a texture like a quiche not custard. I should have gone with my gut and only put in the yolks. The coconut on top would also imprive the texture. I will try again with this change and see how it goes.

I am currently eating this heavenly dessert and had to rate it immediately. There are so many things I love about this custard 1. it's easy - just mix and bake. 2. it seems to be forgiving - I didn't have half and half so I used heavy cream and skim milk 3. it doesn't require a water bath. 4. it's delicious. Only one thing I would do differently next time - instead of putting coconut in it, just put the coconut on top to brown and get crunchy - I guess I prefer my coconut this way instead of soggy in the custard. Even so, I'm thoroughly enjoying this and my husband is too.

I loved the addition of the bananas! What a great dessert and one that I enjoyed all by myself with a generous scoop of Cool Whip on top. Yummie! Thanks!

This is a wonderful custard! I made exactly as directed, adding a touch of coconut to the final minutes of cooking, to brown on top. This custard would be beautifully served with fresh fruit, a little slice of pound cake or a fruit sauce. Thanks so much, KelBel!

Kelbel this is great. I made the custard early in the morning and chilled it all day. I took it out 30 minutes before serving to allow it to come to room temperature. It was amazing. So creamy, light & fluffy, very flavourful. I made my own coconut milk, and added a few sliced strawberries to the mix. I also used Bev's Strawberry syrup to drizzle over top. I'll be making this wonderful treat over and over again. Thanks for sharing.

Oh so yummy! this is so light and fluffy, and couldn't be more easier to throw together, I used sweetened coconut milk but omitted the flaked coconut.. mine took only about 40 minutes to bake, I made this dessert hours ahead and served it semi-chilled..thanks Kel, DH and myself really enjoyed this tonight for dessert...Kitten:)
