There’s no picture with this recipe so I thought it was going to be one of those wonderfully stodgy baked puddings. Instead I was surprised to discover that it’s a much lighter dessert – butterscotch with a meringue topping. It would be wonderfully sweet and just screams out for some cream on top.
No, this isn’t a recipe for just chocolate macaroons – it’s actually a chocolate dessert with macaroons on top. It’s a new one to me. It’s cooked in individual souffle dishes with a chocolate crumb base, a rich chocolate/coffee sauce and topped with coconut macaroons. Definitely one for the chocolate lovers.
As a child I loved going to stay at my Auntie Elsie’s as she would always make salmon patties for me, I loved them. I’ve never managed to make any as good as hers and they certainly weren’t as fancy as these ones that John West published years later. The closest here is the Australian version minus the corn or lemon.
