"Quindim is a very popular Brazilian baked dessert. It was created by African slaves in 17th century Brazilian Northeast, where coconuts were abundant and sugar (from sugarcane) was a major industry. The use of yolks was very common due the Portuguese tradidition of using those in their sweets and pastries. The word itself comes from a Bantu language, and originally meant "the gestures, and demeanor, and humor characteristic of adolescent girls".
