ServingsServes 1 - 6 Portions
- Most of this is cupboard stock if you cook often
- 1 pack of ready to roll puff pastry
- Jam (Smooth of fruity, whatever your choice is)
- 200g Icing/Fondant Sugar
- Coconut (Shredded if you can find it, desiccated will do!)
- I have read that a few people like this with a more textured taste so they add Frangipane, I like it how it is and it is soo simple but if you do?
- 55g butter or margarine
- 55g caster sugar
- 1 free-range egg, beaten
- 40g ground almonds
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- place the ingredients in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and thoroughly combined.
- preheat the oven to 200.c before starting
- unroll your packet of ready rolled pastry and mark out 12 squares with a knife, on a baking tray with greaseproof paper place 6 and these will be the base
- on the 6 bottoms, spread a small layer of jam, dont use too much because it will run away, if you are using the frangipane add a small amount in a blob in the middle (if you would like to be more adventurous you can add sliced strawberry, blueberrys, whatever takes your fancy)
- place the remaining pieces of pastry ontop of the pastry on the tray and squash down a little, then place in the oven for 20 minutes or depending on the oven type until it has a nice golden colour, then take out and set aside to cool
- whilst the pastry is cooling is the time to make the icing, sift into a bowl and add 4 tablespoons at a time to the sugar and mix, the mixture should then start to thicken up and make a paste, keep stirring this to keep it manageable, when the pastry has cooled down then spoon onto the tops the icing sugar until all have a layer. Now is the time to sprinkle the coconut ontop and here you have very easy cakes that you can do with children
