A Philippine dessert. Buco is the tender young coconut meat that can be scraped from the inside of the coconut shell with a spoon. We were able to taste buco in the Philippines, along with the liquid from the coconut (coconut water). Together they are used in this recipe, which I am posting in reply to a request. The recipe is from The Complete Guide to Baking, The Best of the Maya Kitchen, Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center, Makati City, 1991. You will need two to three young coconuts for the 2 cups buco.
