    IHere's a website with a couple of recipes from Colima:

    http://www.mexconnect.com/mex_/recipes/puebla/kgco...

    It seems to have some history on it, too.

    Here's one of the recipes just in case your link doesn't work or something:

    Cocadas:

    Coconut Sweets

    In addition to the west coast of Mexico, Peru and Colombia also claim these sweets as their own, an indication that perhaps they followed the Pacific route of the ceviche. In any case, they are Colima's signature candy.

    Ingredients:

    1 large coconut, drained, peeled and grated

    1 cup water or more as needed

    1 pound sugar

    3 beaten egg yolks

    1 tablespoon butter

    ground cinnamon to taste

    Preparation:

    Measure the liquid drained from the coconut, and add enough water to make three cups liquid. Place the liquid and the sugar in a saucepan and cook until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat, stir in beaten egg yolks and the grated coconut meat.

    Return to heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the bottom of the pan is visible. Remove from heat and stir in the butter. Spread the cocada in a baking tray, sprinkle with cinnamon and allow it to cool completely before cutting into squares.

    They have real food on that site, too---not just the dessert.
