You can get creamed coconut in some Japanese sections of your grocery store. Try to get a kind with no additives. It comes in a solid block and is good in soups, curries, and desserts. I'm sure you could substitute milk for the water and creamed coconut if you really wanted to.

Very interesting flavor with the coconut added. I opted not to use the vanilla extract in this review. I also halved the recipe. This recipe was tagged in the Comfort Cafe's Jan. '09 tag game.
