Food for gay men: Coconut Biscuits

Just saving this recipe here for when I've got a craving for coconut biscuits.

This recipe is easy to make and the biscuits are nice and simple - buttery coconut. Delicious.


  • 120 grams Butter softened
  • ½ cup Caster Sugar 120 grams
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup desiccated coconut 60 grams
  • 1 cup self raising flour 150 grams


  • Preheat your oven to 190 degrees celsius (fan forced) and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Place the butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for approximately 6 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  • Reduce the speed of your mixer to low and add the eggs one at a time
  • Add the self raising flour and coconut and continue to mix on a low speed until combined.
  • Drop dessertspoons of mixture onto trays lined with baking paper (mixture will be quite runny)
  • Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until the biscuits begin to turn golden. Cool on trays for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
