Apricot marshmallow shortcake

Posted by Bake Club on Sunday, December 12, 2021, In : slices 

When you make a batch of marshmallow fluff and have a heap leftover, the only sensible thing to do is make a rich cake using up the egg yolks. To offset the minimal nutritional content of the marshmallow, I beefed up my sponge by adding coconut and buckinis (activated buckwheat groats) to give some crunch. You could replace the apricots with berries or chia jam or store-bought jam.

1 1/2 c water
