Creamy Coconutty Loveliness

There are too many gems to write about them all, but being a bit of a pancake aficionado (I know, I haven’t shared much of this hidden talent with you yet…) I had to try these delicious-looking Thai coconut pancakes from Khanom Krok.

When this Coconut and Raspberry Jam Pudding was chalked up on the menu board, even the grey and lumpy mashed potato could be forgiven. So when the Post asked me for a winter pudding, I thought I would go for a bit of nostalgia. This is ¬†so easy to make, very difficult to get wrong and perfect for using up your home-made jams now the summer fruits are over. You could serve it with cream, but really only custard does it justice. Be warned, though this is very sweet, you might need a nap afterwards… Coconut and Raspberry Jam Sponge Pudding 200g …
