    That is gorgeous! Do you think chicken eggs would work just as well? Is coconut milk the same as coconut cream if it's the good quality thick kind? I'd love to try this recipe.

    Hi Diana,
    Sorry for lately reply just back from my trip.
    For make a custard or any dessert in Thailand we most use duck eggs because of more thick. And coconut milk or coconut cream are the same. Just different calling. Hope you enjoy the cooking heheheh...

    Hi Sophie,
    Thank you for stopping in with kindly comment. I am your member now.

    -I forget to tell you that we use sugar palm, make more thick.
    -If possible can find duck eggs make more easy.
    -And beat the eggs wih coconut cream and sugar palm at the same time not so long until mixture and frothy.
    -How many sugar palm? Depend on side of your pumpkin. And how sweet you need. But not too sweet that make delicious. During you beat the eggs with coconut cream and sugar palm you can taste a little by using your finger.
    -Before poor into pumpkin be sure inside pumpkin are dry.
    -Stream for 45 minutes

    Hope it help.
