Posted 2015-06-13 by finyfollow

If you like the flavour of coconut, this recipe is for you!

I had a jar of mulberry jam that I made when mulberries were in season, and decided to use the jam in a slice.

The recipe is made in four layers however it is not difficult to make and the end result is a rich coconut slice.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: About 24 slices

Ingredients
100 g butter
3 eggs
220 g castor sugar
150 g flour
Jar of [link http://reviewclue.com.au/marco-polo-pitted-cherries/ pitted black cherries]
About ½ to ¾ cup mulberry jam (home made is nicer!)
150 g shredded coconut
80 g desiccated coconut

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 160° fan forced. Line a 28 cm x 19 cm shallow pan with baking paper.

  • Beat the butter and half the sugar with a mixer.


  • Add one of the eggs, beat, and add the flour, stirring or mixing on a very low setting.

  • Put this evenly into the prepared baking tin.
  • The dough is quite thick so try to spread evenly


  • Bake for about 20 minutes.

  • Spoon the jam over this cooked base, as evenly as possible.
  • My jam had large mulberries still in it


  • Put the drained cherries over the jam.


  • Beat the remaining eggs and sugar together (I used the same bowl that I mixed the egg and butter in). Add the two different coconuts to this mixture and stir.

  • Place this mixture over the cherries, making it as even as possible.


  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.

  • Leave in pan till cool, and then slice, and serve.


  • Keep the leftovers in the fridge and they will last for ages if not eaten.
