  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 16cm x 26cm slab pan with non-stick baking paper, allowing the paper to hang over the sides. Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and mix until well combined. Press the mixture firmly over the base of the pan.

  2. Step 2

    Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Spread the jam evenly over the base.

  3. Step 3

    To make the topping, combine the coconut, sugar and eggs. Spoon the coconut mixture over the jam, pressing down slightly. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

  4. Step 4

    Set aside in the pan for 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares to serve.
