Quindim is a very popular Brazilian dessert made from egg yolks, sugar and coconut, like a custard. It can be found in many bakeries and pastry shops in Brazil. It's really simple to make this custard, take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

Ingredients (makes 7):
7 egg yolks*
7 tablespoons sugar (plus more for dusting the cupcake molds)
2 tablespoons butter *
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup milk*

*make sure ingredients are at room temperature


1. Using 1 tablespoon butter, rub the inside of cupcake molds.  Sprinkle sugar liberally all over the molds, then turn the pan over and tap out the excess.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and heat a pot of water on the stove top.
3. Beat the yolks and sugar until creamy.
4. Add the butter, coconut and milk. Beat again.
5. Fill each cupcake with the mixture. Place the cupcake pan inside of a larger pan with sides. Pour the hot water into the larger pan (creating a water bath).
6. Bake for 40 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
7. Let it cool completely. To remove custards, run a knife around the edge to loosen them from the pan and flip. Serve chilled. Enjoy.
