  • 1 medium egg white
  • 90g (3oz) caster sugar
  • 125g (4oz) desiccated coconut




  1. Whisk the egg white until it forms stiff peaks. Gradually whisk in the caster sugar, until glossy. Fold in the desiccated coconut.
  2. Divide the mixture into 15 small cone shapes – you can use an egg cup to do this. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake in the centre of a preheated oven at 160°C (320°F, gas mark 3) for 8-10 mins or until light golden in colour.
  3. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. The coconut pyramids may be stored in an airtight container for up to three days.
Top Tip for making Coconut pyramids

For perfect pyramids, use eggs at room temperature, squeaky clean utensils (rub the inside of a lemon around the bowl to ensure it's grease-free) and take care not to over-whisk.
