Recipe Ingredients

FOR THE BASE
  • 280g butter, at room temperature and soft
  • 400g cake flour
  • 160g castor sugar
  • 1 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 120g desiccated coconut
  • cold water, to bind
FOR THE FILLING
  • 300g strawberry jam
  • 350g strawberries, sliced
FOR THE TOPPING
  • 2 large eggs
  • 90g sugar
  • 120g rolled oats
  • 75g flaked almonds
  • 30g desiccated coconut

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. For the base: place the butter and flour in a bowl and rub together until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the castor sugar, baking powder and desiccated coconut, and mix to combine.
  4. Add a splash of cold water to bring the mixture together and gather into a dough.
  5. Remove from the bowl and press into the base of a 20 x 30cm slice tin. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden in colour. Allow to cool.
  6. For the filling: spread the jam over the cooled base and top with the sliced berries.
  7. To make the topping: in a food mixer, whisk the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes).
  8. Add the oats, flaked almonds and coconut to the egg and sugar mixture. Fold to combine and pour over base and filling.
  9. Bake for a further 15 minutes or until the top is golden. Set aside to cool in the tin.
  10. To serve, remove from the tin and cut into squares or slices.
TIP: You can use any fruit or jam you like!
