~cherry bounty~

This coconut, cherry, chocolate tray bake is another speedy goodie! Golden brown on the top and juicy in the middle.

Made without any flour and just 5 store cupboard ingredients – it tastes fantastic.

Very easy and only about 5 mins to make – just weigh and mix – then into the oven for 20 mins  and voilà!

Ingredients : makes about 20 squares (or 40 if you want bite sized pieces)

200g desiccated coconut

50g caster sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

160g  white chocolate, chopped

85g glacé cherries, chopped

How to :  In a large bowl, mix the desiccated coconut, sugar, eggs, white chocolate and glacé cherries until combined. Spoon into a grease proof paper lined tin of about 20 cm x 30cm and flatten down evenly with a fork. Bake at 160° for 20 mins until golden brown and set, then cool in the tin before slicing into bars/squares and scoffing!

These keep moist for a few days and are robust enough for picnics and rucksacks!

  1. ohhhh, yum! adding glace cherries to shopping list 🙂

  2. I’ve also tried with frozen raspberries and dark chocolate which was just as good.

  3. This sweet looks incredible… I’m not a huge fan of coconut but I honestly think I would devour these gems!
