  • Author: EsmeSalon
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 40 depending on size 1x
  • Category: Cake, Cupcakes, Cookies and Tarts
  • Method: Easy
  • Cuisine: South African


Units Scale
  • 500g of Butter (the more magical, the better!)
  • 1 cup of Icing Sugar (for a dash of sweetness)
  • 1 cup of Castor Sugar or Brown Sugar (because spells need a solid foundation)
  • 4 Tbsp of Golden Syrup (for that golden touch)
  • 2 tsp of Vanilla Essence (extracted from the finest vanilla beans in the enchanted forest)
  • 2 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda (to add a fizzy pop of magic)
  • 4 tsp of Cocoa (straight from the cocoa beans of Cocoa-Land)
  • 2 cups of Oats (the secret ingredient for texture spells)
  • 2 cups of Desiccated Coconut (shredded from the mystical coconut trees)
  • 4 cups of Cake Flour (a must-have potion ingredient)


  1. Begin by summoning your courage and creaming the butter and sugar until they form a creamy alliance.
  2. Add the golden syrup and vanilla essence and whip up a spellbinding mixture.
  3. Sprinkle in the bicarb, cocoa, oats, and coconut, stirring them into the magical potion.
  4. Finally, introduce the sifted flour and mold it into a soft dough using your wizarding hands.
  5. Gently pat the dough on a board and, with the finesse of a wizard, create a crisp cross pattern using a fork.
  6. Channel your inner sorcerer to cut out oval shapes and make a daring slit in the center with a butter knife.
  7. Send your creations into the enchanted oven at 170C/340F for 15 minutes or until they become as firm as a dragon’s scale.
  8. Once your Romany delights have cooled, it’s time for the grand finale!
  9. Sandwich them together with a generous amount of chocolate, allowing it to ooze out of the sides like a magical potion overflowing.

Enchanting Decorations:

  1. Melted Chocolate (because what’s a magical treat without a chocolatey finale)

And there you have it, dear bakers, a Romany Cream recipe that’ll have you feeling like the wizard or witch of the kitchen. May your Romany Creams be as enchanting as the most potent spells in the wizarding world!
