Iron Pigs aka little blocks of cakey-coconuty-chocolatey goodness.
I was introduced to these while working in Cradock…..
For that I blame only one person, and she knows who she is.
Beat until fluffy:
375g castor sugar
15ml vanilla essence
Sift together twice then fold in
30ml baking powder
Pour into 2 prepped 25cm springform pans
Bake at 170C for 16 – 20 minutes
Allow to cool, cut into 2cmx4cm blocks
Boil together over low heat until sugar is dissolved.
allow to cool to blood warm
Roll cake square in syrup to coat the sides
Then roll in dessicated coconut to cover
Serve as a anytime treat.
But they taste especially good served with cooldrink on the side of a river with good company
