There doesn't seem to be anything similar on Zaar yet, so this had to be posted!! This is a wonderful, versatile 'pie'. I serve it cold with thick yoghurt and passionfruit pulp, however others like it warm with ice-cream. It's totally up to you. If you like a very moist cake with a tang, then you'll love this - it's to die for!! Note: My mum uses milk and coconut extract instead of coconut milk, so that could be an option.
