Coconut pyramids are cakes simple enough for children to make, and gluten free.



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Mix the caster sugar and desiccated coconut in a bowl.
  3. Beat the egg in another bowl.
  4. Add the egg (and food colouring if using) to the dry ingredients, and stir until evenly mixed.
  5. Form into 6 or 7 pyramids using your hands or an egg cup, and place on a lined baking sheet (or use cupcake cases).
  6. Lightly press a glacé cherry (if using) into the top of each pyramid.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a pale golden-brown.

Coconut pyramids will keep for a few days in an airtight container.


After baking, the pyramids can be decorated with a little melted dark chocolate.
