Coconut & Jam Slice

This slice is one of Mr CLI's favourites. It is very easy to make and quite yummy to eat.

In an effort to eat even better I bought a tub of Anathoth Jam, as we don't use jam very often I consider the extra expense worth it for a product that has only 2 ingredients fruit and sugar.

I used the 3 berry one, but you can use any flavour jam that you like.

Coconut & Jam Slice

Base - 1 1/2 cups plain flour, 160 gm butter, 1/2 cup icing sugar

Jam Filling - 1/3 cup jam

Topping - 2 eggs, 1/3 cup caster sugar, 2 cups desiccated coconut

Topping - In a bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar, stir in the coconut.

Preheat oven 180.c . Line a slice tin, mine is approx 20 x 30 cm, with baking/parchment paper. In a food processor, process base ingredients until they start to form a ball.

Tip into the tray and flatten. I find that if I dust my hand with a bit of flour, you shouldn't stick to the dough.

All ready for the oven

Bake for 5 minutes of until golden. Remove from the oven leave for 5 minutes then spread over jam.

Covered in its jammy glory.

Then drop the topping over and spread out with a fork.

Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until golden on top. Remove from the oven leave in the tray till cold, then remove and slice.

As you can see mine could have been baked for only 15 minutes, it is very golden on top.

Make yourself a cuppa and sit done and enjoy a slice.

  2. Greetings and you are IN!!! terrific post, thrilled ot have you as a part. It does get easier the more times you submit. I saw there was an issue, easily fixed on our side. We always take a quick look to make sure everything looks good. A possible suggestion, try resizing your photos before posting (it will also make your blog load MUCH faster if anyone looks in with a dial up connection). 500 pixels square works best.
