  • In small bowl, slightly beat egg yolks and ¼ cup of coconut sugar with wire whisk until thick and frothy.
  • Gradually add coconut milk into egg mixture. Do not pour it all at once since you run the risk of cooking the egg yolks. Remember slow and steady wins the race!

  • Carefully place pan with ramekins in oven. Pour enough boiling water into pan, being careful not to splash water into ramekins, until water covers ¾ of the height of the ramekins.
  • Bake 40-45  minutes or until top is light golden brown and sides are set (centers will be jiggly).

  • Uncover ramekins; gently blot any liquid from tops of custards with paper towel. Using the remaining coconut sugar sprinkle it over the chilled custard. Holding kitchen torch 3 to 4 inches from custard, caramelized sugar on each custard by heating with torch about 2 minutes, moving flame continuously over sugar in circular motion, until sugar is melted and light golden brown.
