Coconut Rings (makes 8)

Coconut Rings by The Fat Foodie

Coconut rings are lovely little tasty bites of cake that are formed of creamy desiccated coconut which create a raised moat around a jam-filled centre. They’re a really easy bake to make and require very few ingredients too. In its dried, desiccated form coconut can be used to lend creaminess and body to curries and tagines as well as sweet and exotic fruity flavours to sweet dishes.

Dark Chocolate Gingers by The Fat Foodie

However, although I more than appreciate the merits of ginger in savoury recipes, I think ginger really comes into its own when used in sweet dishes. What would an autumnal bonfire night be without thick slabs of sticky gingerbread that are topped with a creamy spreading of real butter? Or a rainy October afternoon stuck inside the house while you watch black and white old movies with a steaming hot cup of builder’s tea and a couple of gingernut biscuits lying at its side?
