Method

  1. Separate the whites from the yolks. The egg whites will not be used in this recipe, but you can save them to prepare a meringue or an egg white pudding.

  2. In a bowl, place the sugar and butter. Mix well and then add the yolks.

  3. Continue mixing with the help of a wire whisk (fouet). Add coconut milk and grated coconut. Mix everything until it is very homogeneous.

  4. Pour this mixture into molds greased with but-ter and sprinkled with sugar.

  5. Place in the oven, preheated to 110ºC, in a bain-marie, for 30 minutes. The quindins should be colored.

  6. Remove the quindins from the oven and, when they are warm, place a tray on top of the molds and turn over. The secret is not to un-mold them, neither hot (since the quindins break), nor cold (since they cannot come loose).
