If you decide to use ramekins, you will need to pour the mixture in maybe using a ladle and mixing continuously as you want to spread the desiccated coconut evenly across; this is because, as I was saying earlier, the desiccated coconut will end up at the top forming a top layer which is the sweetest part of the dessert. You would definitely like your desert to be a fairly balanced one.
If some ramekins will have loads of it and some a lot less your dessert will be slightly unbalanced with some being too sweet and others a lot less.
Here is my top tip:
To avoid any disappointment for this gorgeous dessert, simply pour the whole mixture into one dish and bake. The baking dish you’d need should be no larger than a 20cm x 20cm, but it can be a smaller and deeper dish and you will end up with a chunkier creamy and coconutty beauty so, just go for it with whatever comes to your hands first.
If using ramekins the baking time will obviously differ to the one dish dessert which will take about 10-12 minutes longer.
I do love my creme coconut to have some depth, so I use a deeper dish rather than a shallow one to have as a result more of that silky and milky part topped by a generous layer of desiccated coconut.
Oh, but the reality is that whichever way you’d go, just get it started and.....tuck in! Enjoy this super delicious and lush dessert! You will never forget it! ? ? ?
