Ok, you know it's not snowing here. But true to European tradition snow reminds us of Christmas.
Today while being rushed by last minute packing, wrapping and craziness, Otis and I made some Christmas Snow Cakes.
The recipe was sent to me by Renata;
- grated/shredded coconut
- 2 egg whites
Whip the egg whites to snow then lightly pour in the sugar and grated coconut. Make the cakes in a small paper basket and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
Knowing my children hadn't eaten fresh coconut before I chose to grate it myself, but this recipe would be very quick if you used the pre-grated/shredded coconut.
Here they are whipped and ready to go into the oven.
And out of the oven. Beautiful and meringue-like with the added flavour and texture of coconut.
Caspar was 'too busy' to cook today but this would be fun to cook with your child. Renata's daughter would make this at two and a half years. She would just whip the snow and her daughter would do the rest. You can see Renata's daughter all the way from Prague pouring the cakes below.
Thank you for the recipe and idea Renata, these were a quick, easy and tasty treat perfect for the season!
