Baked Papaya Dessert
What You Need:
  • 2 small ripe papayas (about 12 ounces each)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1½ cups fresh coconut milk made from 1½ cups coarsely chopped coconut and 1½ cups hot water

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. With a small, sharp knife or swivel-bladed vegetable parer, peel the papayas. Cut them in half lengthwise and, with a spoon, scoop out the seeds.

    2. Arrange the papayas cut side up in a shallow baking-serving dish large enough to hold them comfortably in one layer. Sprinkle the fruit with the sugar and pour ¼ cup of water down the sides of the dish.

    3. Bake uncovered in the middle of the oven for 1½ hours, or until the papayas are tender but still intact, basting them every 20 minutes with the syrup that will accumulate in the dish.

    4. Raise the heat to 400°F and bake for 5 minutes more until the syrup thickens and browns to a caramel color.

    5. Turn off the heat, pour the coconut milk into the cavities of the papayas, and let them rest in the oven for 5 minutes until the milk is warm. Serve at once, or refrigerate and serve chilled.

    To Serve: 4
