Delicious Jam and Coconut Slice Recipe

Hello from sunny Brisbane, Australia, sweet friends! Thank you so much for stopping by to say g'day. I'm so thrilled you are here as I am sharing a favourite recipe of mine for Foodie Friday. It is always a hit at tea parties, fetes as an after school snack or just something sweet to have with your afternoon cuppa.  This Jam and Coconut Slice recipe is an old-fashioned favourite with a cake-like pastry base, a layer of jam and a crispy coconut topping.

I've also been experimenting with iphoneography and made the recipe into an ebook. I used the apps Bookemon, Pic Lab and Insta Quote to make it.
