Make Bebinca this Christmas and make it more special. What is Bebinca? It’s a multi-layered pudding made with flour, eggs, sugar, coconut milk and cardamom-nutmeg powder. You need to be patient to make this as this takes quite a lot of effort but it’s worth it. My hubby loves Bebinca and it’s surprise for him tonight post lunch. This dessert is generally eaten plain Or with a dollop of ice-cream.

This stays for a longer time and can be stored for 2 weeks. In Goa it’s made with traditionalstyle of cooking however I have baked them in oven. Now if you bake in OTG the color will be dark brown in color however I have baked in microwave -convection mode hence the color is not so dark brown. However the taste was delicious and yummy.

This dessert will be mastered if made several times. It’s not a difficult dessert but need to have a lot of time and patience. If you are in a hurry please don’t make them. Make when you are having leisure time.
