Quindim is a popular succulent traditional Brazilian dessert originally from Portugal prepared with egg yolks, sugar, butter, and shredded coconut.
The fresh and exotic taste of the Quindim, with its glossy, creamy rich surface, sugary and coconutty center, will captivate you at first taste. It is delicious, dense, intensely sweet (yes, it is quite sweet) and totally addictive!
The egg yolk gives it a very moist almost gel-like consistency with a toasted coconut topping. It contains coconut, so it can’t be bad.
This is one of my family’s favourite Brazilian desserts, hopefully, you will like it too.
My mom makes it for every important family party.
