  • Difficulty Easy


  • unsalted butter 150g
  • golden caster sugar 100g
  • golden syrup 50g
  • bicarbonate of soda 1 tsp
  • desiccated coconut 100g
  • plain flour 100g


  • Step 1

    Line a large baking sheet, or two medium baking sheets, with baking parchment. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

    Step 2

    Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together in a pan. Mix the bicarb with 2 tbsp boiling water, and stir into the sugar and butter mixture. Remove from the heat, then stir in the remaining ingredients with a pinch of salt, to make a stiff dough.

    Step 3

    Using two spoons, put heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared tray, well spaced apart as they’ll spread quite a lot.

    Step 4

    Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and crisp – 8 minutes for chewy biscuits and 10 minutes for crisper biscuits with a slight snap. Leave to cool on the trays until they firm up.
