Went to grab the bottle of coconut extract and the liquid had evaporated! What to do?! I know!<br/>Add equivalent amount of spiced rum! Yay! So yummy, creamy and easy to make! I tried demerara sugar for standard sugar and garnished the top of the pudding with additional sprinkle of demerara. Made for ZWT 9. Will post photo soon I hope!
