Raspberry and Coconut Slice

Raspberry coconut slice

One of my favourite slices and sweet treats was Raspberry and Coconut slice.  I loved how the raspberry jam became like toffee along the baked edges and the crunchy coconut on top.  This is a slice that isn't particularly pretty but man it tastes good!!!

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of caster sugar
125 g cold butter cubed
3 eggs
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
3/4 cup raspberry jam (I used a raspberry and pomegranate one)
2 cups of shredded coconut

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.  Grease and line lamington pan (24 x 29 cm).
  2. Process flour, 1/2 cup sugar and butter in food processor.  It should look like bread crumbs.  Add 1 egg and the vanilla and process to form a dough.
  3. Press dough into the base of the pan and bake for about 15 minutes or until a light golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and spread the jam over the warm base.
  5. Whisk 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of sugar together.  It should become lighter and sugar should dissolve a bit.  Stir in coconut.  Spread this mixture over the jam.
  6. Bake for a further 25 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool in the pan before cutting and serving.
