  • 1 1⁄2 cups milk
  • 60 g desiccated coconut
  • 50 g butter
  • 1⁄2 vanilla pod, seeds scraped
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 40 g flour
  • 110 g caster or coconut sugar
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1 t turmeric
  • 1 t ground cardamom
  • Fresh coconut, finely grated, to garnish

Preheat the oven to 160°C and grease an 18 cm tart tin.

Place all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into the greased tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.

Sprinkle over the coconut and serve.

Cook's note: This dessert is impossibly delicious to eat and (bonus!) so easy it’s impossible to fail at making it. Simply blend all the ingredients, bake, serve and surrender.
