Coconut, Chocolate and Cherry Traybake

I’m not entirely sure where the week has gone but somehow it is Saturday already and it’s been a week since I last blogged.

Yesterday was a very sad day for us, we had a funeral to attend. When we got home I needed to do something to take my mind off things, and needed something yummy to it too, but because it had been a long day I needed something simple and quick too.

Coconut, Choc, Cherry Traybake

This is so simple, a great recipe to try with the kids or grandkids, and it tastes so good. Coconut and cherry go so well so together, but add some white chocolate to it and its extra special.

Coconut, Choc and Cherry Traybake


200g Desiccated coconut

80g Caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

200g bar white chocolate, roughly chopped

85g Glace cherries, halved


Preheat oven to 180C/ gas 4/ 350F. Line a 20cm x 30cm baking tin with baking parchment.

In a large bowl, mix the coconut, sugar, eggs, white chocolate and glace cherries until well combined.

Transfer the mixture to the tin, gently pressing down the surface.

Cook for 20 minutes, until golden brown and set, then cool in the tin before slicing into bars.
