    ½ cup Edmonds standard flour   

    ⅓ cup sugar                                          

    ⅔ cup finely desiccated coconut

    ¾ cup rolled oats                                  

    50g butter

    1 Tbsp golden syrup

    ½ tsp Edmonds baking soda

    2 Tbsp boiling water


    1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. 

    2. Mix together flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats.

    3. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup. Stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients.

    4. Place level tablespoonfuls of mixture onto cold greased trays and flatten with a fork.  These don't spread as they bake so you can place them close together.

    5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Leave on the tray for 5 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool.

    Pavlova Recipe



    6 egg whites 

    pinch of salt 

    2 cups caster sugar 

    1½ tsp vinegar

    1½ tsp vanilla essence

    1½ tsp Edmonds Fielder’s cornflour

    whipped cream and fresh fruit


    1. Preheat oven to 150˚C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and draw a 20cm circle on the baking paper. Turn over the baking paper so that the pencil line doesn’t transfer to your pavlova. 

    2. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff, then add the sugar very gradually while still beating. Keep beating for 5 minutes to dissolve the sugar.

    3. Slow the beater speed and add the vinegar, vanilla and cornflour. 

    4. Pile the meringue in the centre of the circle and use a spatula to spread it out to the edge of the circle keeping it as round and even as possible. Make a slight dip in the top.

    5. Bake for 45 minutes, then leave to cool in the oven overnight. 

    6. Using two spatulas, lift it carefully onto a serving plate and fill the central depression with whipped cream and fresh fruit.

    Tiramisu Recipe 


    1 tsp vanilla essence
    3 egg yolks
    1/4 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar
    250g mascarpone cheese
    300ml cream, lightly whipped to thicken
    1 cup strong, freshly brewed coffee
    6 Tbsp coffee liqueur (Kahlua or Tia Maria)
    1 packet (16 large) sponge fingers or savoiardi biscuits (sponge cake cut into fingers can be substituted)
    2 Tbsp cocoa


      Over a large pan of simmering water place a medium bowl. In it, whisk vanilla, egg yolks and caster sugar until thick, pale and creamy. Remove from heat and cool. Beat the mascarpone and fold in the whipped cream then fold into the egg mixture. 

      Mix the coffee with the coffee liqueur. Dunk the sponge fingers quickly in the coffee mixture, making sure they are completely immersed. Don’t leave them in for more than a second or two as they can turn soggy.

      Layer the sponge fingers in a serving dish and top with half the mascarpone cream. Repeat with another layer of sponge and top with the remaining cream. Sift cocoa evenly over the top. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
