With the Queen of Cakes coming for dinner I decided to risk it and contribute a dessert of my own.

Rae had gone through Margert’s book and selected a few recipes for me to try and after a quick look in the pantry to see what I could bake with what we already had the winner was Raspberry Jam and Coconut slice.

I was pressed for time and it showed a little in the presentation of the finished product but they taste amazing. Considering I’ve all but given up sweet things the sugar hit from two of these had me buzzing but considering it’s the next morning now and they’ve almost all gone they’re going down as a success.

One thing this lot taught me is patience. I almost ditched the dough for the base because, to me, it seemed to be taking too long to come together in the processor, and I need to be more patient for the creaming stage.

  1. I’m off sweets, too—But I want this. Now. Patience is a plus when it comes to baking—cooking you can fudge(!) around a bit, but baking rules have to followed. And colo(u)r sometimes helps with the egg & sugar process—it should be almost white (in addition to light and fluffy)
