After taking a month’s hiatus from participating in the Blogging Marathon, I am back in full force, participating for all 4 weeks.

This week’s theme is Creamy Foods. From Mac & Cheese to pudding, creamy foods are perfect comfort foods and this week I will be presenting both sweet and savory globally inspired comforting creamy foods.

Although many Americans don’t like floral flavored foods and often will remark that it tastes like perfume, these flavors are often common in Asian and Middle Eastern countries. Rose and Jasmine are two of the most common floral flavors.
You can usually find these extracts/essences in Asian markets and especially those that carry Southeast Asian products. In NYC, I go to Asia Market Corp. where I can find extracts in just about every flavor from banana and lychee to pandan and jasmine. Jasmine or rose would most often be used in this custard, but if you don’t have access to these flavors, substitute your favorite flavor.

How to make Coconut Custard

  • Make custard.
  • Place into ramekins.
  • Bake in a water bath for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Chill and serve.

The Jasmine really elevates the flavor in this simple custard.

  1. we use jasmine infused water very often in deserts. What they do is they place jasmine buds in water and leave it for a few hours. Then you get jasmine infused water. its usually a combination of coconut milk , pandan leaf cardamon and cinamon along with the jasmine water. Got to try your custard, looks really delicious

  2. Such a simple dish with just few ingredients. I've never used jasmine extract, but I'm sure that the dish must have been very flavorful .

  3. 4 stars
    I like it. What about the bottom of the ramekins? Flan has a caramel sauce on the bottom. Could that be used here?

    • You absolutely can and turn it into flan. This recipe was just to demonstrate the traditional Thai version – but I love flan just as much and it will be so delicious!
