Nigeria - Shuku Shuku

Another African country, this time it's Nigeria over in the West of the continent. This coconut ball recipe is a popular dessert there.


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. :)
