What you need:

  • 250g of self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g butter
  • 3-15ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • Jam (strawberry or raspberry)
  • Desiccated Coconut (coconut bits)
  • Icing Sugar

What to do:

  1. Heat oven to 350° gas (180° electric). While doing that, grease a baking tray with butter.
  2. Mix flour and salt together (in a food processor or in a bowl), then rub the butter in until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the caster sugar, mix into a stiff dough and add a touch of milk (small amount).
  4. Divide the pastry into 2 halves (cut it in half) then role or press the halves into a circle.
  5. Spread one half with jam (don’t put too much jam in!) and place the other on top then seal edges together. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minuets or until golden brown.
  6. To make the icing you add 2-3tbs (tablespoons) of cold water to 150g of icing sugar, mix till it is spreadable.
  7. When cool, spread with icing and add the coconut on top.
