    A Reminder of the "Rules"
    (revised May 2017)
    • You must post up the recipe here on CookingBites during the time frame of the competition (no screenshots of or links to recipes on other sites other than crediting is permitted).
    • The recipe must contain the ingredient specified in the challenge. :o_o:
    • The recipe must have the 'recipe' prefix and the 'CookingBites recipe challenge' tag. It should also have the correct normal tags so the recipe below would have the 'chicken' and 'lemons' tags at a minimum.

    • The recipe must be linked to in this thread to indicate participation in the current recipe challenge.
    • (New) Cooking the recipe is optional, though it is encouraged.
    • (New) Photographs are optional, but encouraged.
    • To include everyone in any challenge, a suitable vegetarian/vegan/allergy free/intolerance free substitution will be permitted if the challenge ingredient is something a participant can not or does not eat, for whatever reason. What is permitted is up to the current challenge judge to decide on.
    • (New) In the event that an ingredient is unavailable regionally, substitutions should be agreed with the judge.
    • The judge's decision is final and the new winner will select the next ingredient and the time frame... :scratchhead:
    • And finally, as always, in the event of a dispute the site owner has the final say.:cool:

    @Elawin, can you clarify whether recipes containing coconut milk are acceptable or does it have to be the flesh of the coconut?

    Do they have to ripen up?

    They look about ripe now (I captured that image :cool: today). However, I need to find a lunatic to climb the tree and harvest them.

    As an aside, I went to a party at a mate's house some time ago about 25 km from me and at the time there was a funeral opposite his house. I said "who's dead?" He said "The old man over the road, 65 years old, fell out of a coconut tree!"

    I did say coconut in any form as an actual ingredient, and coconut milk is fine. Sponge cakes or biscuits with desiccated coconut just sprinkled over them are not :laugh:

    I've seen them being harvested in the Caribbean. Health & Safety mob back home would go ballistic.

    Does it include the shell, part of the coconut after all.

    But that would include the ingredient, in any of its forms.

    Only if you like fishing bits of shell out of your food.

    Desiccated coconut sprinkled over food is to my mind just a decoration and not an actual ingredient.

    I'm reminded of these lovely cakes which I haven't seen in an age - in the UK we call them Madeleines, although they are nothing like French madeleines. Now, although the coconut is on the outside, it can't really be called a sprinkle. I have a mind to make them anyway, for nostalgia's sake!

    I need castle moulds...

    :roflmao: But madeleines are not madeleines without the coconut; they are an integral part of the recipe, and therefore an ingredient. A sponge cake with some coconut sprinkled over the top is still a sponge cake, no matter which way you look at it.
