This dessert was part of the Kaffir Lime dinner, and was based on this recipe from Gourmet Traveller magazine, which originally came from Sayers Food in Leederville, Western Australia.

I had challenges making the macaroon crust, and make it three times before it worked. The winning formula was:


  • 220g caster sugar (normal white sugar didn’t work)
  • 4 extra large eggs (~67g each)
  • 250g desiccated coconut (fresh, flaked coconut didn’t work as well)


  • Heated oven to 160 degrees Celcius (fan-forced).

Otherwise, the rest of the recipe was followed exactly.
