  • First, preheat oven to 300 degrees and place a kitchen towel inside a rimmed baking sheet.
  • In a large skillet, add maple syrup, coconut cream and vanilla extract over medium heat. Stir mixture until very lightly boiling (do NOT let it fully boil). Cook for 5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so. Remove from heat.
  • Then, add egg yolks to a small bowl and whisk.
  • Add coconut cream mixture to a KitchenAid or large stand mixer. Slowly whisk mixture. VERY slowly pour in whisked eggs while KitchenAid is still on low speed. The pouring of the eggs should take at least 1 full minute.
  • Once combined, mixture should be smooth and creamy. Then, pour mixture through a strainer.
  • Once strained, pour mixture equally into 3 greased ramekins.
  • Take 1 cup of hot water and pour over towel that's placed in the baking sheet.
  • Then, place ramekins on top of towel.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until middle is slightly jiggly and edges are set. Then, remove from oven.
  • Once cool enough to handle, place in fridge to cool overnight.
  • Once chilled, add 2 tablespoons of maple sugar on top of each custard.
  • Using a kitchen torch, burn the sugar for 1 to 2 minutes, or until crispy but not burnt.
  • Alternatively, add sugar on top of custards then broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until sugar is crispy.
  • Finally, serve and enjoy!
