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!

This is awesome! I increased the coconut milk to 2 cups (1 can) and decreased the milk to 1 1/2 cups, added about 3/4 cup of golden raisins, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, and changed the coconut extract to vanilla and it was to doe for!
