3. Whisk the coconut milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt until well combined. Fold in 1⁄2 cup cream and the coconut.
4. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake for 45–50 minutes, or until set. Cool for 1–2 hours, then chill overnight.
5. To serve, bring the tart to to room temperature. Whip the remaining cream and sift in the icing sugar. Serve with extra coconut.
