Coconut and Prune Flapjacks

Coconut Flapjacks Recipe

If ever you visit Bristol, there’s one location you must – assuming you’re to some degree a food lover – pop your head into; St. Nicholas Market. Chock-full of vibrant stalls and shops purveying food inspired by cuisines the world over, it truly is a feast for the senses. Inside the market building itself is a small, unassuming cafe that sells a wide range of delicious and frugal cakes; perfect inspiration for yet another flapjack recipe. So timid is the cafe that I struggle to remember its name, perhaps it doesn’t have one, but it has given rise to this mouth-watering recipe for Coconut and Prune Flapjacks.

Fresh Coconut and Prawn Curry

Fresh coconut and prawn curry

Coconut is a frequently used ingredient in curry across the Indian subcontinent and, consequently, Britain. In my experience, most British proponents of the coconut tend to use the desiccated variety, which perfectly acceptable. However, though acceptable, desiccated coconut lives up to its name through lack of moisture, passion and interest. Indeed, until you’ve dabbled in fresh, you’ve never properly experienced coconut.
