Ingredients

Directions

In a small saucepan, on medium heat, add the coconut milk, vanilla, and sugar and reduce by 50 percent. In a bowl, mix the rice and reduce milk together. Form 4 cakes using damp hands. Press the cakes into the toasted coconut to coat both sides. Place the cakes in a steamer lined with banana leaves. Steam until hot, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, skewer the fruit to make satays. In a saute pan on high heat, add the butter and saute the satays until slightly colored. Remove the pan from the heat and carefully deglaze/flambe with rum. Return the pan to the heat and cook until alcohol evaporates, about 2 minutes. Remove satays and add cream to pan to make a sauce. On small plates, place one cake down and top with 2 satays. Drizzle on cream sauce.

Propane gas torches are highly flammable and should be kept away from heat, open flame and prolonged exposure to sunlight. They should be used only in well-ventilated areas. Follow torch manufacturer's instructions for use.
