Apricot Jam Scotch Pasty is a lovely variation to the one with raspberry jam. Topped with icing and coconut this scone-like cake is simple wonderful with tea.
Lemon Cake Squares with Raspberry & Coconut Topping are perfect for tea or as a dessert. Soft and spongy with jam and coconut. What could be better?
I was checking out a few websites and came across what seemed like a very nice biscuit, Kingston biscuits. These seem to be coconut and oat biscuits with a chocolate filling placed between to and sandwiched together. They originate in Australia and are made there by Arnotts.

I do love coconut and have made quite a few recipes that include it, but today’s recipe makes coconut the star. These individual coconut tarts are made in small, fluted, moulds. But they could equally well be made in a bun tin. In that case the pastry would have a wider base, but be shallower […]

I just love biscotti the had, twice baked, biscuit/cookie that originated in Italy. I also love coconut and had some coconut flour that needed using. So I decided to make biscotti with it, using flaked coconut too. Usually I just use eggs, or egg whites, as the liquid element of biscotti but today I inluded […]
