Although there is technically a bit of baking involved here, this week’s Cakes & Bakes is more of a little suggestion for leftover pastry from making other things.

We had a few pieces after making a batch of sausage rolls yesterday.

Generously spread jam or preserve onto the rolled out pastry – we chose strawberry and plum. Then sprinkle with coconut and bake for about 10 minutes; that’s it!

 It’s delicious, especially when eaten whilst still warm.

It works well with puff or shortcrust pastry – a lovely little treat with that well deserved cuppa.
