Coconut & vanilla cake
• To make toffee sauce, bring 100g butter, 11/2 cups brown sugar and 300ml cream to the boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Allow to cool before using.
• A large ham weighing 9-10kg will cater for about 30 people. This recipe can be made with a half ham, too.
• Store your leftover ham in the fridge covered with a clean tea towel rather than plastic wrap and it will last for 5-7 days. • Serve the ham with salt-roasted potatoes on the side. Toss 700g new baby or halved gourmet potatoes with olive oil, a sliced fresh garlic clove and rosemary leaves then arrange on a bed of 2-3 Tbsp rock salt. Roast at 180°C for 20-25 minutes or until tender and coloured. ○
