Very tasty. And not too sweet, as others have stated. I could see having this warm, for breakfast. I added a little toasted coconut sprinkled on top of a dollop of vanilla yogurt. Made for ZWT 9.

DElicious!! I had been eyeing this recipe for a while and I am happy I got a chance to make it. It is really full of flavor! It is not terribly sweet, but it doesn't need to be. The coconut flavor really comes thru and the spices I used were cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and cardemom. The cardemom especially really complimented the coconut flavor. I loved it!

Made as written for the Goddesses of ZWT-9 - This was so good, easy-to-fix & fun-to-make! It is more textured than tapioca or rice pudding & is just lightly-sweetened by the syrup. For the spice blend, I used Gingerbread Spice Blend by Debbwl (a personal fave) & I got 6 ramekin-size servings which I feel is more size-realistic than 4 & lowers the calorie-count to 390 per serving. Kids would love this for dessert or as an after-school treat. For those among us w/a more serious sweet tooth, extra syrup or even brown sugar can be added. I had used all my yogurt for another recipe, so I showed it 3 ways in the pic: Topped w/whipped cream, caramel sauce & a dusting of powd sugar w/nutmeg. Thx for sharing this yummy recipe w/us.
