Serves 15 | 30 mins prep | 55 mins cooking | 344 calories per serving

190g (1 1/4 cups) plain flour
100g cold butter, chopped
80g (1/2 cup) pure icing sugar, sifted
1 1/2 tbsp iced water
255g (3 cups) desiccated coconut, plus 2 tbsp, extra
40g (1/4 cup) self-raising flour
395g can sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs, lightly whisked
2 tbsp shredded coconut
250g fresh strawberries, hulled, thinly sliced


1 tbsp pure icing sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp butter, at room temperature
2 tsp milk

Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan forced. Grease the base and sides of a shallow 3cm-deep, 20cm x 30cm slice pan and line with baking paper, allowing the paper to overhang the long sides.

Place plain flour, butter and 1/2 cup icing sugar in a food processor and process until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gradually add the iced water and process until the mixture comes together in a ball (you may not need all the water). Press mixture evenly over the base of the prepared pan. Use a fork to prick the base all over. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until light golden. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, combine desiccated coconut and self-raising flour in a large bowl. Add condensed milk and egg. Stir until combined. Spread evenly over base. Mix the shredded coconut and extra desiccated coconut in a bowl then scatter over slice mixture. Arrange strawberry on top. Bake for 30 minutes or until firm and golden. Set aside in pan for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Life out of pan onto a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the icing, combine icing sugar, butter and enough of the milk in a small bowl to form a thick paste. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water) and stir until mixture thins.

Spoon icing into a sealable plastic bag and snip off 1 corner. Drizzle over the slide. Set aside until set then slice.
