That delicate mixture of carefully baked biscuit, a touch of fruit, topped with crispy sweet meringue… what more could any taste buds long for?
150g butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 egg yolks, 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar, 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/ cup red jam ( any flavour).
Ingredients for meringue topping:
4 egg whites, 1 cup sugar, 2 cups desiccated coconut
Line 25* 25 cm baking tin with baking paper. Preheat oven to 180°c
Cream butter and sugar, add vanilla sugar until mixture is light and fluffy
Beat in the egg yolks one at a time
Add flour and baking powder and mix a little only until a crumbly mixture forms
Press this evenly into prepared baking tin and bake for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile warm jam in microwave long enough for it to become liquid.
Once base ready take it out of oven and leave a few minutes to cool.
Spread liquid jam mixture over biscuit base.
Beat 4 egg whites until very stiff and then add sugar, a little at a time.
Gently fold through the desiccated coconut.
Spread evenly over biscuit and jamb mixture.
Return to oven for a further 20 minutes or until crispy on top.
Once finished take out of oven, cool for at least 15 minutes and then slice into even sized portions.
