Cocada Cuban Style

Cocada Cuban Style - Cuban desserts recipes

Cocada is a typical dessert from several Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries and is made from a dough made from grated coconut and milk that is then baked.

This Cuban-style recipe does not use milk. Hope you like it!


  • 150 g grated coconut
  • 200 g sugar
  • 3 eggs


Put the eggs and the sugar in a bowl and mix until you get a uniform mixture. Add the coconut and mix well. If it is too dry, add one more yolk of egg. Finish by kneading with your hands. Shape them with your hands or with a spoon and put them on baking paper. Take them to the preheated oven at 180° Celsius for 20 minutes. They should be browned on the outside and fluffy on the inside, which will harden a little when they cool down. They come out approximately 25 cocadas.
