225g butter, warmed to room temperature
45g Siucra Icing Sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp cornflour
100g desiccated coconut
300g plain flour
300g Siucra Icing Sugar for rolling the cakes in
Preheat the oven to 175 C, line a baking sheet with baking parchment, and set it to one side.
Whisk the butter until creamy and then add the icing sugar and salt, mixing well. Add the vanilla sugar, cornflour and desiccated coconut.
Continue mixing at low speed while adding the flour a little at a time, until you have a smooth batter.
Roll the batter into balls (1 tbsp of batter for each), place on the baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes.
Remove balls from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before rolling in plenty of icing sugar. Place them on a wire rack and leave to cool fully.
Roll the balls in icing sugar again just before serving.
Here you can find both satisfying and sweet treats for a very happy Easter weekend.
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
How about serving up a creamy, tangy cheesecake rather than a regular cake at your party? Cheesecakes come in many different variations, forms and flavours.
