I saw this amazing recipe from Chew Town that I was salivating. It has a lovely golden syrup flavour with coconut and zesty lemon, a nice coconut flavoured tart base, and toasty macadamias. The perfect combination.

  • Instead of dusting with icing sugar, drizzle golden syrup before serving for some added sweetness and golden syrup flavour.
