Delicious and easy to make. Liked by all even those who are normally not keen on coconut . I doubled the recipe and this would easily serve six.Will make again.

A keeper for sure. So easy, lovely crusty coconut topping and wonderful balance of sweet with a touch of sourness from the blueberries. I didn't have creme fraiche so used cream. I found it gave 3 good servings. Yummy

Lovely quick dessert, made it tonight and it turned our perfectly,had it with some vanilla frozen yogurt, I think it would also be nice with custard or whipped cream, I'll try that next time. Very pleased with this dessert.

This recipe is amazing! Just made it for the second time. Doubled the quantities each time and worked perfectly. The only thing I did differently was to add less sugar (85g) to the main mixture. Then I sprinkled a couple of teaspoons of sugar on top of the blueberries when you put them in the dish. Then sprinkled some brown sugar on the top of the mixture instead of coconut. Delicious. We all loved it.

made by my daughter it was fantastic, not too sweet and a light texture. Nice with the coconut in. The whole family enjoyed it.

This is so easy to make and is really tasty.

I used frozen blueberries as I had brought a big tub some while ago and found them to be too sharp, but they work perfectly in this pudding and keep the overall cost down.

Made it yesterday but it's nearly all gone so about to make another one now!

i didn't have creme fraiche so used greek yogurt and mistakenly mixed the lemon juice with the cake mix, but it turned out lovely. i'm not a huge coconut fan but i thought the combination was really tasty.
next time i'll try double/triple the cake mix and baked in a cake tin so it can serve more than2 people.
