Nigeria - Shuku Shuku
1 cup coconut
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
Flour for coating
Put the coconut, sugar and egg yolks in a bowl. Observe how it looks a bit like a smiley huge eyed slug!
Mix it well. It makes a dry stiff mixture.
Form into 1 inch balls and roll in the flour.
Place on a greased baking tray and bake for 20 minutes on 175C.
JD, Leigh and I enjoyed these coconut balls. They were chewy and soft inside but slightly crunchy on the outside. Almost like coconut macaroons in flavour. Easy to make and a nice treat for anyone who likes coconut. I would recommend baking them at a slightly lower temperature because my coconut balls browned slightly too much on the outside singeing the flour coating a bit. Didn't affect the taste any. :)
