My kids love this slice so much, I've had to inform their girlfriends over the years that my sons can't get married until their prospective brides-to-be learn how to cook this one. (Well, this is just the beginning of the repertoire).
6 Tablespoons butter
1 cup coconut
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
Raspberry Jam (or any jam you prefer really)
Beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar to a cream.
Add 1 beaten egg.
Sift in flour and salt.
Butter a flat square cake tine, put mixture in, work out flat with fingers.
Spread thinly with a layer of jam.
In a bowl, beat 1 egg, cup of sugar, cup of coconut and spread on top of the jam layer with a fork.
Bake for 15 minutes in a moderate oven.
While still warm, cut into squares and place into airtight container. Good for a week.
