Here's my babies! Just look at them.... Hhmmm...mmm......
Really really fluffy and aromatic due to the coconut flavouring I've added in. If you can't find the coconut extract, probably you can use light coconut milk instead of water. My daughter just adores it! She's having these for her breakfast and also brought two along for her lunch box. Hope you all will enjoy this recipe as well!
