Raspberry Coconut Slice


Ingredients
50g Butter
90g caster sugar
1 Egg
45g plain flour white flour
45g plain whole meal flour
45g self raising flour
1/2 cup raspberry jam (today I used Strawberry)

TOPPING
1 egg beaten
50g caster sugar
90g coconut

Directions
Preheat oven 180 degrees and line slice tin with baking paper
Place butter and sugar into TM, mix 30sec speed 3
Add egg and mix further 19 sec speed 3
Add flour, mix till combined speed 3
Spread evenly into prepared tin (with lack of butter it's a little hard to spread so I use the back of a spoon wet with water). Bake 10 minutes.
While still warm spread base with raspberry jam
Combine all topping ingredients in TM 29 sec, speed 3
Sprinkle topping evenly over base
Bake 25 minutes, let cool completely before slicing.

This is an oldie but a goodie. I used 80g butter for the base, and a lot less sugar, only about 2 tablespoons each for the base and the topping. Then I just bake it all at once for 20 to 25 mins. This time I used the boozy strawberry jam that I made in conjunction with the Strawberry liqueur. Quick, easy yummy.

Our backyard eggs make the topping very yellow  :D

That looks so good Gayle.  It would be a nice one to take to Probus for morning tea. You wouldn’t have the need to freeze any of yours Gayle but I daresay it would freeze well?

Thanks Judy and CC.
Judy I'm guessing this would freeze well, but I have never been able to freeze any. The one I made yesterday is nearly all gone lol.

I can imagine this would have been delicious Gayle. I really enjoy it but DH says he doesn't like coconut, but does eat some.
