hi! i just made this recipe today (similar one in parents magazine). do you find it a bit too sweet? i wondered if maybe the "cream of coconut" was meant to be "coconut milk"? i'm not much of a cook, but i thought that cream of coconut/coconut cream was more for sweet tasty cocktails!

still, it was really yummy!

i am enjoying reading through this site and am looking forward to trying out some new recipes! thanks!

Hi Linda, I used coconut milk. I didn't realize there was a difference between coconut cream & coconut milk. (The recipe I had said coconut cream.) Maybe that is why yours came out so sweet!
