For The Base:

300 grams plain flour (2 c)

110 grams caster sugar (½ c)

125 grams butter, chilled and roughly chopped

1 egg, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For The Topping:

225 grams jam, in the flavor of your choice (¾ c)

2 egg whites

110 grams caster sugar (½ c)

85 grams desiccated coconut (1 c)

80 grams shredded coconut (1 c)


To start preheat your oven to 180°C (fan-forced). Grease and line a slice tray measuring 18cm x 28cm with baking paper ensuring that the paper extends beyond the edges.

Using a food processor combine the flour, sugar and chilled butter until they resemble breadcrumbs. Next add the egg and vanilla to the mixture and process until it forms a dough.

Now press the dough evenly into the tray using a spoon to flatten it. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until it turns golden in color.

Once you’ve baked the base spread a layer of jam across its surface.

Moving on to the topping: In a bowl whisk together egg whites and sugar. Then stir in both shredded coconut.

Spread this coconut mixture over the layer of jam, on top of the base.

Return the tray to the oven. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top becomes golden, in hue.

Finally allow everything to cool completely while still in the tray before lifting it out and slicing as desired.


Transforming our beloved Raspberry Jam Coconut Slice into a gluten-free delight is wonderfully simple and equally delicious. To ensure everyone can indulge in this scrumptious treat, swap the regular plain flour for your favorite gluten-free flour blend. A 1:1 gluten-free flour designed for baking is ideal, as it’s crafted to mimic the texture and binding qualities of wheat flour. When selecting your jam, double-check that it’s labeled gluten-free, as some jams may contain gluten additives.
