(Not rated yet )
Coconut custard baked in a kabocha squash is a popular dessert in Thailand. This recipe uses the easier-to-find pumpkin. If you’re serving chilled slices, caramel or chocolate sauce makes a nice, if untraditional, topping.

  • 1/4 cup chopped candied ginger
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries , (optional)

Stir in allspice, cardamom and salt. Gradually add coconut milk mixture, ginger and cranberries, stirring constantly. Pour custard into pumpkin shell. Add one inch of warm water to baking pan.
