Coconut Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

This recipe is definitely for the coconut lovers. A quick recipe that is easy to prepare and only takes 10-15 minutes in the oven depending on how golden you would like them to be. I also thought these would make a really nice homemade gift for friends or family members. Whilst we are still in somewhat of a lockdown and we can’t see people as freely as we would like, why not bake some cookies and post them to loved ones. The recipe makes quite a lot depending on how big/small you want them to be and they will keep for a few days in an air tight container.

These cookies are great to make with kids because the recipe is simple and a perfect treat with a cup of tea! Also, the desiccated coconut is a great source of fibre.

110g butter

130g caster sugar

1 egg

100g desiccated coconut

Mini Oat Raisin Biscuits

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I have previously mentioned about reducing sugar in the things I bake and these biscuits only contain maple syrup and raisins for sweetness. They are quite plain but this make me realise how much added sugar is in processed products. These biscuits are quite dry so they would be perfect for dipping into your tea!!

Recipe: Mini Oat raisin Biscuits (makes 12)

Ingredients

50g oats

50g plain flour

1/2 baking powder

Pinch of cinnamon

20g raisins

20g butter

1 tbsp maple syrup

3 tbsp milk or milk alternative

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter, syrup and 3 tablespoons of milk together, pour into the bowl and mix together until a dough forms.
  • The dough might be a little stiff so you could add a little more milk, otherwise roll out onto a lightly floured surface and use a cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes.
  • Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes and leave to cool on a wire rack before eating.

Traditional Rock Cakes

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well. Today’s recipe is Rock Cakes. Traditionally from Ireland, UK with ingredients such as dried fruit and spices which gives it the common taste. I love keeping them in the oven for an extra 5 minutes to get a crunchy outer layer but it is still soft and very cake like in the middle. These are great to make because they have a rustic vibe and can be eaten any time of the day, not so indulgent but still tastes great. Before adding the egg it might look like there is not enough liquid but just give it a good mix until everything combines together.

Recipe: Rock Cakes (makes 14)

Ingredients

200g self-raisng flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp mixed spices

100g butter

40g granulated sugar

45g demerara sugar

50g mixed dried fruit

1 egg

2 tbsp milk (I used a milk substitute)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with parchment paper.
  • Put the flour, baking powder, mixed spice and butter into a bowl and use your fingers to rub in the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Then add the sugars and dried fruit giving it a mix.
  • Next add the egg and milk, nixing until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  • Spoon the mixture onto the trays and bake in the oven for 25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Leave to cool before eating
