  • 290g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 225g desiccated coconut
  • 200g butter
  • 400g blackberries

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Grease and line the tin with parchment.
  2. Place the 115g sugar, flour, baking powder and desiccated coconut in a mixing bowl and, using your fingers, rub in the butter. Press half of the dough firmly into the base of the pan.
