This is so quick and simple to make that it takes just a few minutes before it’s in the oven baking.
250 ml coconut
200 ml brown sugar
250 ml self-raising flour
250 ml mixed dried fruit (sultanas, raisins, currants)
120 g butter or margarine, melted
1 egg, beaten
Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the melted butter or margarine and beaten egg. Press into a swiss roll tin (23 x 33 cm) and bake at 190 C for 20 – 25 minutes. If you want them soft and chewy don’t leave them in too long. The longer you bake them the crunchier they get (which is how I prefer them).
Cut while hot and leave in the tin to cool.
If desired pour a lemon icing over whilst still hot.
