Siúcra Icing Sugar
Grease a small baking pan (about 20 x 30 cm) and sprinkle with flour.
Beat the eggs and sugar until fluffy. Combine the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and stir into the mixture.
Bring the water and butter/margarine to the boil and add the chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture into the tin and bake in the lower part of the oven for 20 minutes at 200°C.
Combine all the ingredients for the coconut paste in a saucepan and simmer until the paste thickens, stirring constantly.
Remove the cake from the oven and raise the heat to 225°C. Spread the coconut paste over the chocolate cake and bake at the centre of the oven for a further 10 minutes until golden.
Allow the cake to cool, then cut into pieces.
Dust the cake with icing sugar before serving.
Ideal for freezing.

Time for citrus
Is there anything better than to start the morning with homemade marmalade on your toast. Let the season's citrus fruits inspire you.
Inspired by the Japanese breakfast staple, Puffed Pancakes with Strawberries, Cinnamon Syrup and Lemon Cream, served warm and straight from the pan are sure to be a winner with all the family.
Mmm! What could be better than a rich, sumptuous chocolate cake to lift the spirits – either as an indulgent treat or to round off a meal.
Cheesecakes of every kind
