  1. Boil a pot of water first, heat 4 eggs with insulated water to about 40°C, and feel the warmth with your hands. Then the unsalted butter and coconut milk are also melted in the hot water, just leave it to stay warm.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350 F.
  3. Add sugar to the egg mixture, and beat at medium-high speed 4th gear for 8 minutes, until the color turns white and the volume is 3 times larger, then turn to low-speed 1st gear and beat for 1-2 minutes to eliminate large air bubbles, the egg batter is fine. Warm egg mixtures are easier to beat and more stable.
