Pour a little onto the egg mix and whisk it in , whisk in a little more and then return the egg mixture to the pan. Whisk over a medium heat until the mixture thickens and stops tasting floury. Whisk in the butter. Cover with a layer of clingfilm and cool completely.

Spoon the coconut cream into the tart cases, smooth the top and decorate with wedges of caramelised pineapple. Sprinkle with a few drops of rum.
