Coconut Slices

If you have a sweet tooth but feel guilty for eating high calorie sweets, this might be for you!  This coconut slice is low in fat, and you really can enjoy the texture of coconuts shred:)

When I found this recipe I was amazed how moist and tasty it can be with such little amount of butter.  I guess it’s because of the coconuts.

This slice is great when it’s warmed and served with vanilla ice cream ♪♪♪

*** Coconut Slice ***

  • 1/2cup icing sugar
  • 1cup self-raising flour
  • 50g butter, cold, chopped into chunks
  • 2eggs
  • 1stp vanilla extract
  • 2tbsp raspberry jam
  • 1cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2cup caster sugar
  • 1tbsp lemon juice

* Heat oven to 180.

  1. Place the icing sugar, flour and chopped butter in a bowl.  Using the fingertips, mix them until it looks like breadcrums.  Whisk vanilla into one of the eggs, then add to the mixture.  Stir to combine.
  2. Press the mixture into a greased and lined slice tin, then spread the top with raspberry jam.
  3. Whisk together the other egg, caster sugar and lemon juice until pale, then add a cup of coconut.  Carefully spread the topping over the jam, then bake for about 30minutes, until the top is browned.
  4. When it’s cool, cut them into slices.
