    Is there anything more delicious than a good coffee cake served warm with a nice cup of coffee? This recipe will produce a thin cake with a creamy custard topping! This recipe was created for the RSC #8.

      This reminds me very much of Finnish quark pies made around Easter - they are flavoured with lemon and have raisins in them, so despite the Caribbean influences I felt like I was eating something very "familiar". :-) The fresh ginger was a great addition. (I think I'll add some into my Easter quark pie this year, too...! Thanks for the idea!) I did use 4 tbls of orange juice for plumping the currants as 2 tbls didn't cover them. Lovely small cake and quick to make!

      I love the thin cake crust. Sweet, delicious and very much like a shortbread, or a flan crust. Absolutely five thumbs up. I obediently prepared this recipe exactly as Chef instructed, (using Splenda, because of health implications), and it turned out exceptionally well. The flavour of citrus is a refreshingly tasty addition to the custard..... and the coconut..... OH BOY. I do love coconut... The cake baked up well, was easy to cut and remove from its pan. Chef, your cake and a printed copy of the recipe will definitely be included in our annual fund raising Bake Sale. Thank you Chef for sharing your extraordinary talent. Sorry, 5 is the maximum...

      I found the batter to be more like a dough. And I found that the cake required more time in the oven than stated in the recipe. The custard topping is good--but better after the cake sits for quite a while. Eaten warm as suggested it is a little rough tasting--after it has 'cured' a bit, the custard is less acetic and the shortbread-like bottom and the custard top blend much better.
