You will need -
8 Dariole Moulds (mine are silicone and came from ebay!)
100g butter (softened)
100g caster sugar
2 large free range eggs
100g self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
2-3 drops vanilla extract
Grease the moulds (do it well... you'll thank me later!).
Mix all the ingredients together until the mixture is well blended and smooth.
Spoon into the moulds making sure you don't have big gaps at the bottom of each mould!
Bake for 15-20mins at 180C - you want them fairly firm (but not overdone) as it's a bit of a challenge to get them out totally intact otherwise.
Allow to cool thoroughly before attempting to turn out. With these silicone moulds it's best for one person to push gently from the bottom while someone else guides it from the top.
Jam - I used some homemade redcurrant and strawberry jam
50g Desiccated coconut
4 glace cherries (halved)
Warm the jam in the microwave and roll each cake in it (don't get any on the bottom!)
Roll in the desiccated coconut and then stand the cake upright. Pop half a glace cherry on top!
