American Classics: Haupia

Sweets Alexandra Penfold 8 comments

In my experience, coconut is one of those love-it or hate-it foods. As a kid, my only real exposure to coconut had been in the context of cloyingly sweet confections which put me staunchly in the hate-it camp. It's dishes like haupia, a traditional Hawaiian luau staple, that have since made me reconsider. More

The reason this French dessert is surfacing here under a Spanish alias is that islas flotantes are a served in many homes and restaurants around Latin America.

Though some recipes call for baking the meringues and then slipping them into the custard, I follow the more traditional route and poach them. A bite reveals that these islands are rather more like clouds. More

Coconut Custard Pie

Serious Eats Lauren Weisenthal 1 comment

This is the coconut pie of my dreams. The all-butter crust is blind baked to golden brown perfection, and filled with the creamy, smooth coconut custard just before serving, so the bottom stays perfectly crisp. I like the contrast of the toasted coconut folded into the custard, but if you prefer a smoother filling, toast only what you'll need for sprinkling on the top. More

Tres leches is typically topped with mounds of whipped cream, but here, a toasted marshmallow cap with bits of bronzed and toasted coconut makes for a just as fitting match. More
