Old-fashioned Coconut Custard

This recipe came from a friend who worked for a period at a well known regional restaurant in Qld known as Weis'. This makes one of the smoothest, creamiest baked custards that I've ever had the privilege of tasting. All those eggs can make it a bit 'eggy' you may be able to eliminate this with the addition of a little cream cheese as used in some flans. Otherwise, modify the recipe maybe use one less egg or use 4 whole eggs 1 yolk etc. I still love this custard...don't let that put you off trying it...plz. Cooking time is a suggestion only.

I love coconut! This was just delicious! Not difficult at all to put together, and a smooth taste. I did cut back by 2 eggs using 3 whole eggs and 2 whites. Worked great! Thanks! Made for 2009 Spring PAC
