Originating from Angola, cocada amarela is a heavy dessert made principally from eggs and coconut[1] and has a distinctive yellow colour due to the large quantity of eggs used. The name, cocada amarela, literally means yellow cocada.

As a former Portuguese colony, cocada amarela is highly influenced by Portuguese pastries, known for the large quantities of egg yellow in traditional recipes.
