“I posted this for the Caribbean leg of ZWT III & only just got around to trying it myself. I did a half batch using coconut cream & cooked for approx 12 mins, I also used Splenda in place of sugar. My microwave does run a bit hot so if your is the same I would cook on MED. This is a lovely simple & quick dessert or if you're like me you could have it for breakfast”
