A scrumptious serving of Toasted Coconut Crème Brûlée is one of the best ways to end a meal. It starts with the perfect layer of caramelized sugar over a luscious thick custard, enhanced with coconut flavorings. Coconut milk, coconut extract, and toasted unsweetened coconut flakes provide a slightly floral yet subtle flavor element to the dish. And finally, the fresh, tart raspberries help to offset the richness of the custard.
In a heavy bottom saucepan, whisk the coconut milk and heavy cream together. Add in 1 cup toasted coconut flakes and simmer over low heat.
Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, mix the egg, egg yolks, and 3/4 cup granulated sugar until the eggs become a pale yellow.
Once the coconut milk and cream have scalded, pour the liquids through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl. Use a rubber spatula to press the coconut flakes against the strainer to releases any remaining liquids.
Turn the stand mixer back on low and slowly stream the heated coconut milk/heavy cream into the eggs. Add in the coconut extract and vanilla extract.
Place 8 5-ounce ramekins into a large baking dish. Pour the custard mixture through another fine mesh strainer to remove any remaining lumps. Use a spoon to skim off & discard any excess frothy bubbles. Divide the custard evenly between the ramekins. Carefully pour boiling water into the baking dish so that it comes halfway up the sides of the ramekins. The water bath will allow for the custards to cook gently and evenly. Transfer the baking dish with ramekins into an oven that has been preheated to 300°F. Bake the custards for about 35 minutes or until the centers are just set when gently shaken.
Remove the ramekins from the water bath and place them on wire racks to cool to room temperature. Cover each ramekin with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Before serving, take a clean paper towel and blot off any excess moisture from the tops of each ramekin. Spread a spoonful of the remaining sugar over the top of each of the ramekins and use a kitchen torch to brûlée the sugar until it becomes caramelized and browned. Top each ramekin with the remaining toasted coconut flakes and a few fresh raspberries. Enjoy!
