Petits Gâteaux au Coco

Small Coconut Cakes

Method

Petits Gâteaux au Coco. Sweets made from coconut are almost as popular in the West Indies as those made with bananas, and freshly gathered coconuts have quite a special flavour. Beat up ¼ lb. of finely grated coconut with the same quantity of sugar and the whites of 2 eggs. When the mixture is very stiff, drop a spoonful at a time on a well-buttered and somewhat thick baking tin, and bake in a moderate oven till the little coconut cakes are just beginning to colour.
