Coconut Meringue Cake



This Coconut Meringue Cake is really yum and just like a cake version of the Louise Slice.  I found the recipe in a magazine at the beach house we stayed at on our anniversary holiday.  Perfect served with whipped cream!

Coconut Meringue Cake 
by cooking legend Tui Flower 

Ingredients
125g butter
½ cup sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 cup standard flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1-2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
¼ cup jam (any flavour)
½ cup sugar
1 tsp cornflour
1½ cups desiccated coconut

Preheat oven to 160°C.  Lightly grease a 20cm springform cake tin.

Cream the butter and the first measure of sugar until fluffy, then beat in the egg yolks.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together and stir into the creamed mixture.  Add the milk and vanilla to get a spreadable bater.  Turn into the prepared tin and spread evenly. 

Warm the jam if stiff.  Spread over the cake base leaving a border of about 5mm at the edge.

Beat the egg whites until stiff, add the second measure of sugar and beat to form a meringue.  Mix the cornflour and coconut together and fold into the meringue.  Spread evenly over the cake mixture so it covers the unjammed edge.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until the cake is lightly browned on top and comes away from the edge of the tin. 

Allow to stand for 10-15 minutes before lifting out.   Cool on a wire rack.  Best eaten on the day it's made.
