Jam and Coconut Slice

I came across this recipe in my efforts to make a home-made version of AT’s favourite cheap and nasty bakery treat – Jam and Coconut Slice. Like the ones he used to get at the bakery near his childhood home – yellow, gluey and streaked with a line of fluorescent pink ‘jam’. The kind with the dense, crumbly base and the juicy coconut top. Ok, so they weren’t THAT bad. And it was very mumsy of me to try and make the home-made version. These ones are lighter, more crumbly and taste of home-cooked goodness. Nothing like the original, mass-produced version, which is a good thing.
