for Anna, recipe from this lovely cafe here
5 oz cooking chocolate
2 oz vegetable margarine
4oz soft brown sugar
4 oz coconut
2 oz glace cherries (chopped)
line a Swiss roll tin with non-stick baking parchment or foil.
melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave, and spread over foil/paper and leave to cool.
Cream margarine and sugar. Beat in egg. Mix in cherries and coconut. Spread over the chocolate and cook until golden brown (15 -20 minutes) at Gas 4, 375F, 190C. cut into slices when cold.
I used foil and it stuck a bit, might try parchment next time, or that amazing re-useable non stick sheet stuff you can buy.
the beady eyed amongst you might notice that some of the pieces have raisins not cherries, for Miss K and hubby who are not cherry eaters - these pieces are good, but the raisins burnt a bit..
These might be good for you Kristina, for your allotment picnics.
We also made some great cookies last week, from Mel, recipe here, but they got eaten too quickly to photograph, - Mel has a good photo of hers!
