How about finishing your meal with some delicious coconut raisin bars? Use the coconut flakes both for the base mixture and for the topping. Further, enhance the vanilla-flavored cake base by soaking it with milk after baking. Raisins will add a pleasantly chewy touch to the overall puffy texture.

Ingredients Needed for Coconut Raisin Bars

    7 egg whites
    1 ½ cups of sugar
    3 ounces of raisins
    1 ¼ cups of coconut flakes
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ⅔ cup flour

How to Make Coconut Raisin Bars

  1. Add the egg whites to a bowl and start whisking using a hand mixer. Add 1 cup of sugar in the process. Whisk until firm.
  2. Add the raisins, 1 cup of coconut flakes, the baking powder, and vanilla extract. Mix until even using a spatula. Add 1/3 cup of flour and mix more.
  3. Line an 11 x 7 x 2 inches (28 x 18 x 5 cm) baking dish with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture to it and evenly spread it. Bake for 25 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  4. Remove from oven and pour 1/2 cup of milk over it. Let it soak for 2 – 3 minutes or so.
  5. Add the yolks and the remaining cup of sugar to a pot over low heat. Cook while continuously whisking. Add the remaining milk and flour in the process. Simmer for 10 minutes, then let it cool.
  6. Add the butter to a bowl. Mix until creamy using a hand mixer. Add the yolk mixture and mix more until even.
  7. Layer this mixture on top of the baked base. Sprinkle the remaining coconut flakes all over it, then refrigerate for 60 minutes.
