    It was meant to be the mrs making something today cos her family were paying us a visit this arvo. Somehow the tables got turned and i got the job.
    Tis an old recipe mum used to make when i was a kid.
    I decided to give it a whirl...

    INGREDIENTS:

    Base
    125g unsalted butter
    1/3 cup custard powder
    1/3 cup plain flower
    1/3 cup caster sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    3/4 cup rasperry jam (warmed)

    Topping
    2 eggs (seperate yolk and whites)
    1/3 cup caster sugar
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    3 cups dessicated coconut

    METHOD
    Preheat Oven to 180C
    To make the base
    Brush the base of a 30x20cm pan with butter
    Line with baking paper
    Place butter, Custard Powder, Plain Flower, Caster Sugar eggs and essence in a food processor (or if your like me just put in a bowl and use a fork) and mix til it just comes together
    Spread mixture evenly over the base of the tin
    Bake in preheated oven for 20 mins
    LET IT COOL
    Layer the warmed jam onto the base

    To make the Topping
    Beat egg whites in a small bowl until stiff peaks form
    Add sugar gradually beating well after each addition
    Transfer to a large bowl
    Add egg yolks and vanilla essence
    Stir through the coconut
    Spread topping over the slice
    Bake for a further 20 - 25 mins again at 180C
    Allow to cool a bit and serve with some double thick cream

    Makes about 18 slices
    Keeps well for 3 days in an air tight container at room temp
    I doubt it will last that long

    Made this a few days ago. Unfortunately the base came out sort of like a rubbery caramelised thing. Any suggestions?
