Bake: Coconut Domes


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Now, there’s macarons and there’s macaroons

On the one hand you have your pretty, delicate French mini-meringues

And on the other you have your dense baked coconut creations

I’m a fan of both, but when it comes down to it – coconut ALWAYS wins (especially when fresh from the oven at continental markets)

Not only are they super tasty, they’re also super quick and easy to make

I took Mary Berry’s recipe for coconut pyramids, changed the shape and added some chocolate drizzle

You will need…

  • 225g desiccated coconut
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • several squares of dark chocolate
Pre-heat the oven to 160c (fan)
Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper

Mix the coconut with the caster sugar in large bowl

Beat the eggs together, then gradually mix into the large bowl

Fill mould (I just used my ceramic tablespoon measurer – hence ‘domes’) with mixture, press it into the mould, then turn out on baking tray

Repeat. Then bake for 20 mins (until they turn golden brown)

Cool on wire rack

Meanwhile melt chocolate in small bowl placed in saucepan of boiling water. Drizzle over coconut creations.
