Sweet Corn Pudding

Niece wanted a 70's theme for her birthday, and I remembered that we had sweet corn pudding at almost every party we attended then.  Dug out this old recipe from my recollection and re-created this popular dessert.

Sweet corn pudding

Ingredients :
1 cup sugar
1 cup custard powder
2 cups coconut milk
2 1/2 cups water
1 tin (425 g) cream style sweet corn

Method :
1)  Place sugar, custard powder, coconut milk and water in a sauce pan.  Stir till custard powder and sugar dissolve and is not lumpy.
2)  Put to boil on medium flame, stirring all the time till the mixture comes to a boil.
3)  When mixture thickens, add in the cream style sweet corn.  Stir until well mixed.
4)  Pour into a lightly oiled 10" square cake tray.  Leave to cool.
5)  Chill in the fridge.  Cut and serve.

I was so busy preparing the other goodies for the party that I forgot to take a shot of it before cutting it up.
Notes :  I made it according to the recipe, and it was a tad too sweet for my taste buds.  If coconut milk is not available, it can be substituted with fresh or UHT milk.
