    This recipe is a must keep for coconut lovers and best of all is easy to make. It is creamy and sweet with the right hint of rum. The only comment I have is that the recipe calls for 'can shredded coconut'. I could not find that in any store around my house, so I used the shredded coconut that comes in a bag and that worked perfect.  -  22 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a very interesting recipe. It seems to be a combination coconut cream pie/custard/flan. Because I prefer a creamy custard I substituted evaporated milk with 1/2 whipping cream, 1/2 vanilla soy milk. I used coconut milk instead of cream of coconut and bagged coconut flakes because they don't sell canned coconut flakes in syrup here. I put the glass pan on a towl in a deep cookie sheet which I placed in the oven and filled with water for even heating. After an hour, the custard was pale and beautifully cooked, so I sprinkled some white sugar (1/4 cup) on the top and broiled it on high until the top was golden and crunchy. Then I cooled it and refrigerated it for 2 hours. Lovely creamy custard with a sweet crunchy top.  -  07 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Everyone who liked coconut, liked this recipe. Those who did not like coconut hated this recipe. The only thing I will change next time, is I will add less flaked coconut. I thought it took away from the texture. **For all those having a difficult time finding Cream of Coconut, look in the liquor isle with the Pina Colada mixes. That is where I found it  -  01 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
