Preparation steps

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Cream the butter and sugar with a pinch of salt. Beat in the melted chocolate couverture and eggs, then fold in the flour, lemon zest and desiccated coconut. Spread the mixture on a small baking tray (approx. 20 x 20 cm) lined with baking parchment and bake in the preheated oven (middle shelf) for about 25 minutes (test with a wooden cocktail stick to see if it is done). Take out of the oven, turn out on to a rack and leave to cool.
For the cream topping, soak the gelatine in cold water. Mix the quark with the coconut milk and coconut flakes. Add the vanilla sugar, sugar and lemon juice. Put the gelatine into a small pan dripping wet and heat gently until it dissolves (do not let it boil!). Beat into the coconut cream. Whip the cream until stiff and fold in.
Put the sponge base into a square baking frame. Spread the coconut cream smoothly on top of the cake and put into the refrigerator to set.
Warm the jam gently, stirring, and spread on top of the coconut cream. Leave to set, cut the cake into slices and serve.
