I did absolutely nothing today. But when the clock struck 4 pm I had to get up and do something! And as always, I decided to bake. Today, for the first time in forever, without (dark) chocolate!!


120 g white chocolate

120 g butter

2 eggs

120 g sugar

125 g flour

100 g grated coconut

1 tsp baking powder

120 ml coconut milk



200 g cream cheese

120 g sifted powdered sugar

100 g grated coconut


1. Preheat the oven to 175 °C. prepare a muffin baking plate with muffin forms. Melt the chocolate and butter  in a small pan on low heat and let it cool down again.


2. part the eggs, beat the egg  white. add 50 g sugar and blend it to a shiny mixture. beat the yolk with the rest of the sugar and mix with the chocolate-butter-mixture.


3. blend the grated coconut and flour with baking powder and add it in turns with the coconut milk to the dough. lastly add the beaten egg whites. divide the dough over the 12 cupcake forms and bake them for 25 minutes in the middle of your oven. let them cool down afterwards.
