    And I worked on this beautiful long weekend! However, Jen brought me some treats to work, and this slice I enjoyed muchly! x Thanks Jen!

  • I haven’t made one of these since I was a kid, my Gran was the Raspberry/Coconut Queen. Good memories.
    I headed over to the Mudgee Wine Festival…, was still raining but hey, who cares right!!?

  • Oooh do you have a special recipe?!?! You know what they say about sharing! I love my Nan’s recipe for Aunt Maud cake – sultanas, peel and lots of butter. Yumo!

  • Yum. Raspberry coconut slice always goes down a treat. Can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend.

    I realise now that no-one saved me a piece of the delicious looking raspberry coconut slice(in fact as I think of it ,no-one even mentioned it’s existence during my recent stay in Sydney!) Despite this slight glitch I had the most wonderful holiday with my two darling children and their delightful partners and ate lots of scrummy food, the unbelievable,outstanding,fantastic,and mind blowing restaurant experience being Spice Temple. Thank you NB!!!!!!

    • What a gross oversight! Although between Brown Sugar, Forbes & Burton, David Jones Food Hall, Bocconcini/Tomato sourdough in Surrey…would there have been room?!? What am I saying – there’s always room!

      What an amazing week having the Duck in Sydney
