2. Mix the self-raising flour and ground almonds in a mixing bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter cubes into the flour until the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and mix.

3. Spoon 125ml (85g) of the mixture into a smaller mixing bowl. Add the coconut to the mixture in the smaller mixing bowl.

4. Pour the beaten eggs into the remaining mixture in the larger mixing bowl and beat until mixed. Spread the mixture onto the bottom of the prepared baking tray and sprinkle the raspberries on top.
