Ingredients

  • 2

    cups sweetened and shredded coconut, divided

  • 1

    cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar, divided

  • 1

    tsp corn syrup

  • 1

    quart plus 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1

    Tbsp vanilla

  • 6

    cinnamon sticks

  • 7

    eggs

  • 1

    cup plus 2 Tbsp honey

Directions

1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. 2. Spread the coconut on a rimmed baking sheet and toast until the coconut is a light golden color, 10-12 minutes, stirring halfway for even coloring. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. 3. Prepare the caramel: In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar and the corn syrup with enough water to moisten the sugar to a wet sand-like consistency. Place the pan over medium-high heat and cook until the sugar is melted to a syrup and turns a rich golden color, 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately divide the syrup among 10 ramekins (8 oz), swirling the caramel to line the base of each. Set the ramekins aside. 4. In a small heavy pot, combine the cream, vanilla, 1 cup of the toasted coconut and the cinnamon sticks. Bring to a gentle boil over medium heat without scorching, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. 5. While the cream is heating, whisk together the eggs, honey and remaining 1/2 cup sugar, in a large mixing bowl until smooth. 6. Slowly ladle the heavy cream 1 ladle at a time into the mixing bowl with the eggs, whisking constantly, until all of the cream has been added and the mixture is fully combined. Strain through a fine sieve, discarding the cinnamon sticks and any solids. Divide the custard base among the caramel-lined ramekins to just below the rim. Divide the remaining toasted coconut among the ramekins. 7. Place the ramekins in a roasting pan (you may need to cook these in batches), leaving couple of inches between each ramekin, and place the roasting pan in the oven. Carefully fill the roasting pan with enough hot water to come 2/3 up the sides of the ramekins. 8. Bake the ramekins until they jiggle just slightly when tapped, about 1 hour. Carefully remove the pans from the oven and cool the custards, then cover and refrigerate the custards at least 4 hours to set (custards can be refrigerated up to two days) 9. To serve, run a small knife around the custards to loosed. To unmold, carefully invert a small plate over each custard to dislodge it from the ramekin (if the custards are stuck, carefully run the base of each ramekin over a low flame on the stove-top to warm the caramel). Serve immediately
