Using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until well blended then slowly add in the 2 eggs. If the mix looks like it's curdling, add in a tablespoon of the flour.
Add a drop of vanilla extract. When the eggs are well incorporated slowly add in the flour and baking powder, then add the milk to make a thick cake dough that is spreadable.
Spread this mix evenly into the base of the tin using a spatula
Drop spoonfuls of jam over the sponge base and then spread out to cover the sponge.

Make the topping:

Place spoonfuls of the topping onto the jam layer and spread out to cover the jam.

Bake in the middle of a pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes until the coconut is well toasted.

Leave the cake in the tin to cool and then run a knife around the edge to loosen before cutting into squares. Enjoy cold or warm with custard.
