This came from the book 'Entertaining with Cranks'. The page with this recipie has dropped out, therefore I have adapted it. It is absolutely delicious.

I made this last night and it was fabulous. Due to a mix-up between two recipes, however, I used a whole can of coconut cream instead of the 4 oz of creamed coconut. Also seasoned it with some hot curry powder. Next time I hope to try it with the creamed coconut, but this way bears repeating.
