Although the description of condensed milk is not all that appetising (milk with all the water removed), when sweetened, it turns into a thick and delicious baking product. It was invented by the French confectioner, Nicolas Appert , who is known as 'the Father of canning'. Distressed by the death of several children due to spoilt milk, he came up with a way to make milk last longer in storage. Although it was originally made to improve health, it is now an indulgence that should be considered part of an every now and then treat.
Inspired by the coconut pyramids my grandpa used to make, this coconut loaf is very simple, containing only three ingredients, and is absolutely divine.
