DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 190°C.
  • To make the pastry, sift the flour into a medium bowl. Rub the butter into the flour with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs (this could also be done in a food processor).
  • Add egg yolk to the flour mixture and enough water so that the ingredients can be pressed together to form a firm dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangle large enough to cover the base of a slice tin (about 20x30cm). Place the dough into a lined slice tin and bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 180°C.
  • Spread the jam evenly over the pastry base.
  • Combine the coconut, eggs and sugar in a medium bowl and mix with a fork until all the coconut is moist.
  • Spread the coconut mixture evenly over the jam (do not flatten mixture). Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow the slice to cool in the pan before cutting into slices.
