    Lovely and scrumptious. This went down very well with a fussy child. I will absolutely be adding this to my cook book...YUM!! PS I made a slight adjustment to suit my family's palette  -  18 Dec 2013


    This was nice and easy to make, my son loved it. Next time I would use less dessicated coconut but replace some of the regular milk with a can of coconut milk, and I would also use white sticky rice as it lends itself really well to puddings. I give it 3 stars, my son gives it 5!  -  25 Mar 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
