Coconut Pineapple Custard Crumble

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: YiYi
Cuisine: Taiwanese

This is an easy dessert with impressive results. The custard is quick and simple, a mixture of coconut milk, sugar, flour, egg yolks, and vanilla. The crumble topping is butter, sugar, flour and cinnamon. The custard thickens up right in the saucepan and the crumble needs about 20 minutes in the oven to brown. A little cooling time and it's ready to serve.
