Apricot Jam Coconut Slice
« on: March 11, 2015, 12:30:07 am »
I used to eat this slice growing up and mum used to use raspberry or strawberry jam. That’s the beauty of this easy slice it is so versatile to what you have in the cupboard I had apricot. This recipe has been adapted from Taste.com.au.

Apricot Jam Coconut Slice

Ingredients:
300g plain flour
180g sugar
120g butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
250g jam (any flavour you like)
160g desiccated coconut

Method:
• Preheat oven to 180 C
• Grease and line a rectangular slice tray (18cm X 28cm) with baking paper
• Mix the flour, 90g sugar and the chilled butter at Sp 5 for 10 secs or until it resembles breadcrumbs
• Add 1 egg and the vanilla essence and mix on Reverse Speed 2 for 30 secs or until the mixture has formed into a dough like consistency
• Press dough firmly into the base of the prepared pan.
• Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden
• Spread jam over warm base (keep putting on until you have a good covering)
• Place the remaining eggs and sugar into the TM bowl and mix at Speed 3 for 10 secs
• Add the coconut and mix Reverse Speed 2 for 15 secs
• Spread coconut mix over the jam.
• Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden.
• Allow to cool completely in the pan before cutting into slices.

Oldies are always goodies.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I made this, this morning.  So quick and easy and it tastes wonderful.  I couldn't wait for it to cool down before I cut it and had a piece with a cuppa.  I used plum jam in mine. Thanks TME, another great recipe.  :D

I made these at the weekend using some of Chookies yummy blackcurrant jam.  The recipe turned out exactly as I remember from my childhood (at least my memory hasn't started going on me yet ;D).  They are delicious and I only have four pieces left (after giving some to my neighbour, one of my colleagues and having them for morning tea at work as well).

As JulieO said, quick and easy ... what more could you want!
