Quindim (pronounced keen-deem) is a Brazilian baked dessert made with sugar, egg yolks and shredded coconut.


Units Scale

1 cup sugar

1 cup fresh grated coconut (if fresh is unavailable, use unsweetened flaked coconut)

1/3 cup coconut milk

8 egg yolks, beaten

2 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 360 degrees F.

Blend all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl.

Pour into mini-muffin tins that have been greased and dusted with sugar.

Fill a big baking pan with about 1/2 inch of water and place the mini-muffin tin inside the pan. Bake in the water pan until flan is firm and golden brown (15 minutes).

Remove from oven, cool and remove from mini-muffin tin by running a knife around the edge. If they do not release immediately, chill first.

Can be placed in paper cups for serving.
