Now it is time to take a step back in time and share a school dinner pudding!
Before our kids started school, school dinners were probably not the healthiest or the most varied. But the puddings were on another level.
They were the best thing on the school menu when we were there. This jam and coconut sponge is the perfect thing to take you back into your school days. It is up there with the cornflake tart, which with no doubt has to be the most iconic school pudding there is. Hopefully, in the coming weeks, we would have perfected that recipe to share with you all.
However, we are going to get cracking with this recipe! This simple jam and coconut cupcakes recipe is the perfect pudding for those days where you just need a treat. It will satisfy that sweet tooth and if you want to complete the dish, serve with some gorgeous custard too. The recipe is super simple too, so you can put them in the oven and relax whilst they bake. It takes a matter of minutes to get them ready for the oven and then just 10 – 12 minutes to cook.
You can easily tweak this recipe to suit your taste in terms of the fruit jam topping or could even add a few chopped nuts for additional flavour. Either way, these jam and coconut cupcakes are the perfect sweet treat to end a meal or even treat with a cuppa.
Over time we are going to add to our school classics recipe collection, what would be your top recipe from school? Pop us a comment in the box below to let us know.
