What Started it all:
Coconut egg water butter

This delightful coconut egg custard is a creamy and rich dessert that combines the tropical flavor of coconut with the smooth texture of custard. It's perfect for a comforting treat that is sure to impress your guests.


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Prepare the Custard Mixture: In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten. Add the sugar and continue to whisk until fully dissolved. Pour in the coconut milk, water, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Mix well until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Melt the Butter: In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Allow it to cool slightly before adding it to the custard mixture. Stir well to incorporate the butter evenly.
  4. Strain the Mixture: Strain the custard mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into another bowl to remove any lumps or egg solids. This will ensure a smooth, creamy texture.
  5. Prepare the Baking Dish: Lightly butter a baking dish or individual ramekins. Pour the strained custard mixture into the prepared dish or ramekins.
  6. Bake the Custard: Place the baking dish or ramekins in a larger baking pan. Pour hot water into the larger pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of the custard dish/ramekins. This water bath will help the custard cook evenly. Carefully transfer the pan to the preheated oven.
  7. Bake Until Set: Bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the custard is set but still slightly wobbly in the center. A knife inserted near the center should come out clean.
  8. Cool and Serve: Remove the custard from the oven and let it cool in the water bath for a few minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

This coconut egg custard is a simple yet delicious dessert that can be enjoyed by everyone. The tropical coconut flavor pairs beautifully with the rich, creamy texture of the custard. Serve it chilled, and consider garnishing with a sprinkle of toasted coconut or a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of indulgence. Enjoy!
