Coconut Klappertaart

Klappertart has been my 'really-want' dessert to make for a while, but I never got a chance to make it. Now at last, my very first ever Klappertart and I'm quite proud of myself with the result. The texture resembles custard dessert covered with meringue and topping with almond and raisin. Obviously will make this over and over again.

Klappertaart is a Dutch-influenced Indonesian dessert originally from Manado, North Sulawesi. Literally Klappertaart means 'coconut tart' and surely the main ingredient of this tart is coconut; both the water and the young flesh coconut. This tart may looks like overly creamy, but they are actually lighter than you think. The coconut's water make this tart fresher.
