Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 Celsius.

I have seen bad custard recipes that don't work, but this is not one of them. Follow these directions closely, and you will have perfect custard that turns out right every time. I really like the coconut with it. It adds a tropical feeling to the dish.
