We start of by preparing the base of our dessert. We do that by putting 130 grams of flour combined with 70 grams of sugar in a mixing bowl. Next step requires our hands to get involved. So we simply grab the butter and start mixing it together with the sugar and the flour until it gets the consistency of breadcrumbs.

Next we grab a baking tray and cover it with parchment paper. The size of the baking try should be 33 cm * 23 cm . And  now we simply spread the mixture equally throughout the entire baking tray.

We put the baking tray in the oven for 8-10 minutes at 175°C (347° Fahrenheit).

In the meantime we prepare the coconut layer. We do so by mixing 1 egg combined with 100 grams of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar.

And now we start whisking.

After the mixture gets a texture that is similar to this one add 50 grams of crushed nuts.

After this is mixed well we add our finaly ingredient which in my case is 75 grams of coconut flakes.

In the end it should look like this.

When the base has fully baked we take it out of the oven and wait a tiny bit for it to cool down. Then we start adding the upper layer to our base.

All there is left to do is to fully bake this dessert. So once again put it in the oven at 175°C (347° Fahrenheit). However this time we want it to bake a bit longer around 12-15 minutes.

After it has fully baked take it out of the oven and let it cool down. This makes it so it is easier to cut and it is not so sticky.

After waiting a short while grab a knife and start cutting small squares.
