Hi folks. Today is reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club. I am going to do something very un-Lunatic like and make this a snappy post though. I am quite sick and it's late, and I really need some rest. I have to go out tomorrow even though I am sick. Mini-me's last class of her first semester of Uni so I am driving her in. So here's hoping I can sleep tonight and tomorrow goes smoothly.
I was assigned the blog Bizzy Bakes this month. I had a hard time finding a recipe to do simply as there was so much yummy goodness to choose from. I almost picked the whoopie pies but due to my flu like state I went another route. Something simpler, easier to make. I choose her fruity bars and just tweaked it mildly. More due to trying to cut the prep time due to my feverish state than anything else. Not to self, make the assigned blog recipe weeks in advance. That way when you get the flu you are covered. Live and learn. Make sure you stop by Bizzy Bakes to see the original and to say hello. Lots of goodies over there to tempt you.
- 1 cup dried cherries
- ½ cup flaked coconut
- ½ cup canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup dark brown sugar
- Pinch vanilla salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Pop all your ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined. ( I know you should separate and do this more carefully but I was sick and figured this type of recipe could withstand haphazard ingredient tossing, I was so right, worked perfectly!)
- Pour into a greased cast iron pan and smooth out.
- Stick in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
- Remove and let cool.
- Serve with a smile.
- Go lay down cuz your sick!
So please swing by and say hello to Bizzy Bakes today. And if you're interested in joining the Secret Recipe Club swing by there and sign up.
Also make sure you visit some or all the other SRC people linked here. It would make me feel better. But no pressure or anything. I mean it's not like I am sick and you should feel bad or anything. No...really.
Okay I am now officially woozy and off to bed. Night all.

Great recipe! I love anything that utilizes my fav kitchen tool, the cast iron skillet. Cherries and coconut are wonderful.
Yummy, I love cherry and coconut together. Good pick for the SRC. Sorry you aren't feeling well!
Ooh, that looks good. Love that it's cooked in a cast-iron skillet. It could be killer gourmet camping food!
Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love.
Cherries and coconut are a great combo! Wnderful SRC pick!
Yikes, I'm so sorry you're sick, Kim 🙁 Not a good time of year for that. I wish I could bring you over some soup (except you don't like soup!)...well, something so you could rest. You picked out an excellent recipe...I love Bizzy Bakes 🙂

I'm sorry to hear you are sick. Hope by now you are little better after your daughter's being home. It's amazing you can pull this off when you are sick. It must be very easy recipe or you are very good at baking (I'd have no energy or motivation to bake - even without sick no motivation to bake arh!). I'm going to check Bizzy Bakes. It's very catchy name!

You did a great job my dear...
@Anne- Thank you so much. I really enjoyed this one.
@Anna- Lol, I have weird habits I know.
@Parsley Sage- Thanks so much. Soup would be good.
@Dara- Thank you. I love this cast iron pan, I've only had it a few months and I love it for everything.
@Carolyn- Thank you so much. Feeling better already.
@Cucina- Thanks. That's a great idea.
@Stephanie- Thank you so much!
@Lizzy- Lol, I love that you remember that. Bizzy is great. So glad I found her through the SRC, she does super cool stuff on her blog.
@Nami- Thanks my dear. It was simple and I am weird and don't mind cooking when sick. Odd I know.
@Reem- Thank you so much, you are so sweet. I had fun with this even being sick.
Dried cherries are such a treat (and high in vitamin C too, so good for your immune system). Get well soon!
Mmmmm ... I love baking with my cast-iron skillet and absolutely love anything with coconut, so this dessert looks like a winner for me (though I really *not* should lay off the baked goods soon!).
Hope you feel better soon! 🙂
Cherry and coconut, how decadent is that. Wonderful!
This sounds like a great breakfast alongside a cup of black tea. YUum! Thanks for sharing.
@Juanita- I knew there was a reason I liked them so much. Thanks.
@Asmita- Thank you!
@Spicie Foodie- Would be perfect with tea. Thanks for coming by.
