Pandan Coconut Pot de Creme

Pot de Creme is a kinda creamy rich dessert and it's also one of the French famous cuisine. It's usually serve in small cups or bowls. Sounds so elegance, isn't it! And I just had my first batch of homemade pot de creme with a little Asian touch. Pandan is a very common flavouring ingredient over here in Asia and it also easily found here. So is coconut milk! These two are the best marriage couples ever!

And here's what I did.

Ingredients for Custard :
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup pandan juice
1 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
1 tspn pandan paste (optional)
*pandan juice : 1/4 cup water blending with 3 pandan leaves and stained.
Method :

- combine coconut milk, pandan juice & paste and heavy cream into a saucepan and stir over medium heat untill bubbling, then leave aside.
- beat egg, egg yolks, and sugar untill creamy.

- now, gradually pour coconut mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
- divide mixture to 4-6 small cups.
- and bake at 170'c for about 40 mins (over water bath) or untill the centre is set.
- then serve warm with palm sugar syrup.

Ingredients for Palm Sugar Syrup :
200gm palm sugar, roughly chopped
100ml water
50gm sugar
1 tbsp molasses

(combine all ingredients and boiled untill sugar dissolved.)

My kitchen smell like heaven, my goodness! Maybe because of the slightly burnt topping. I've reduced sugar in the custard. It tastes just fabulous with the palm sugar syrup and some extra fruits. Now, just let us enjoy the pot of looooove!

Kristy, this looks cute, although it can be filling with coconut milk and palm sugar. Must admit this is a good combination and with pandan too! Have a great weekend!

Anncoo said...

WOW! This looks so yummy. Great combo and you also added the lychees in it? Yum...yum..

Angie's Recipes said...

kristy, I would have probably taken this as matcha creme :-) Beautiful colour and palm sugar syrup sounds fantastic!

MaryMoh said...

That's a beautiful dessert! That must be a new creation in Malaysia. Malaysia boleh!! :D

My Little Space said...

Cheah : Aren't we lucky to have all these wonderful ingredients here?

Anncoo : Yeah, just top it with some lychees! I love fruits.

Angie : I seldom used matcha in my bakings cause my family doesn't like it at all. So, has chosen pandan instead!

MaryMoh : No-lah, not something new! Just something we enjoy!

Thanks guys for stopping by and spending your time here with me. Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.

Blessings, Kristy

the lacquer spoon said...

What a lovely pudding! I always try to find pandan sweets in South East Asian restaurants in Tokyo, but hope to try your recipe when pandan is available in an Asian grocery :)

reanaclaire said...

kristy, where did u get this recipe... gosh.. desserts is my favorite!! can i shift next to your house?

Alice Law said...

Oh dear, my tummy rumbling after reading your post.... I can really imagine how's your kitchen smell like after the dessert was made!!!

1 Question: Why must separate the 1 large egg and the other 2 egg yolks, but later mixed with it in one batter... (Sorry, I'm a bit slow here):)

Happy weekend Kristy!

divya said...

wow..looks amazing!! great pics too...

Kumi said...

Looks really delicious! Wonder if we can get our hands on pandan here in the states... have you tried this recipe without pandan or something else in place of pandan?

Mary said...

What a lovely dessert. It is completely new to me, but it looks wonderful. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

Alice : Oh, nothing to do with that! Isn't that clearer to write in that way? Thanks for asking!

Divya : Thanks alot, dear!

Kumi : Yes, of coz! You can go without the pandan. JUst use 1 cup coconut milk & omit the pandan juice. It still as wonderful!

Thanks everyone for spending your lovely time here with me today. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend.

With Love, Kristy

Lyndsey said...

Looks so yummy! I have yet to find pandan anything. Maybe I'll check on line. I got some palm sugar! This does looks so elegant! Nice dessert!

Have a great weekend!

ICook4Fun said...

What a great idea to give an Asian twist to a French dessert. They look simple divine.

Cook with Madin said...

Hi Kristy, This is lovely dessert. When I was growing up in the Philippines, we have Pandan plants in our backyard; my mum and dad will put them in dishes they cooked. Over here in US, they come frozen, and sometimes they don't have that wonderful smell that it creates. They also come in tiny bottles just for flavoring. I will definitely try this, because I just love the taste and aroma of pandan. Thank you for sharing.

citronetvanille said...

Beautiful twist on a French classic! I love the color of your pot de crème and texture, it's lovely!

My Little Space said...

Mary : I remember you've once told me that you've the pandan planted in your backyard! Still there?

Bridgett : Thanksand hope you'll like it!

HH : Hmm...yes, green is my favourite colour too!

Claudia : Hopefully, you'll find some pandan leaves and try this out! All the best!

Lynd : Can you find the leaves from the Asia food store over there? Good luck! Or you can ask for the pandan extract/paste if any!

ICook4fun : Hope your Carlos going to like this! hehe...

Madin : Hi there, nice to see you and welcome to my humble little space. Hope to hear from you more often. Btw, I've also planted my own pandan leaves. So handy!

Silvia : Thanks, daaaahling! Hope you'll like it too.(No cinnamon is added in!) ^_^

Great idea adding pandan, and the lychee..yum!

Jess @ Bakericious said...

I like pandan, this must b tasted great, yum yum :)

Very innovative pot de creme, Kristy. I have heard of pandan, but have never had it. I assume it is green 'cause that's the predominant color.
And are those lychees on top? Yummy.

I have lots of pandan at my back yard too....another yummy way to utilise them!

Elin said...
