Recipe by MsPia

I got this recipe in Hawaii at the Polynesian Center. They were giving samples away and it was delicious. I haven't make it yet and the baking instructions are not very good (it doesn't mention a baking pan), but I will try it and see what happens.

So glad this recipe was posted. Just got back from Bora Bora where I had some and wanted the recipe. This is perfect, I made only two changes. Instead of just water I used the coconut milk from the fresh coconut and I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. So easy (after you get the fresh coconut out of the shell)!
