For the cookies

1 (approx 500g) box pineapple cake mix
110g unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
250ml milk
2 tbsp dark rum or rum extract
75g desiccated coconut
1) Preheat the oven to 165C/Gas 3.

2) Put the cake mix in a mixing bowl and add the butter. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the eggs, milk and rum. Beat with a wooden spoon until you form a smooth batter. Fold in coconut until evenly distributed.

3) Spray 2 madeleine moulds with nonstick cooking spray.

4) Using a tbsp, drop the batter into the moulds filling halfway. If you don't have madeleine molds, you may drop the batter on an ungreased baking pan.

5) Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until the cookies are nicely browned. Let cool in the pan then turn out onto a platter. Repeat method with remaining batter.
