Tray of Coconut and Raspberry Slice

Today’s Simple Coconut Raspberry Slice is a handy way to put sweets on the table when you don’t have much in the cupboard. Raspberry jam makes these nice and moist. The secret is to let them cool completely before cutting them, otherwise they will be a mess.

Serves: Four
Time: 1 hour


  • 90g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup self-raising flour
  • 2/3 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam, warmed


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut

Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease and line a 20 x 30cm slice pan. Extend baking paper up the sides of the pan , to make the slice easier to remove when cut. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar in a bowl. Add the egg and mix well. Carefully stir in flour. Mixture will be quite thick. Spoon it into the lined pan and press smooth. Spread the warmed jam over the base layer.

To prepare the topping, stir together the eggs, sugar and coconut in a medium-sized bowl. Spread this over the jam to make the top layer. Bake in the oven for 35–40 minutes, until golden brown. Remove slice from the oven, and allow to cool completely before slicing.

    With two half cups of sugar, and half a cup of raspberry jam which is mostly sugar, shared by 4 people = about 1/3 of a cup of sugar per person. Great recipe for on-setting diabetes, which may lead to blindness and amputation of toes and fingers.

    When will YourLifeChoices stop promoting such damage, or warn of the consequences?

    I have been making Raspberry Slice for years and I have never used sugar in topping only egg / coconut

    You have to click on "print"in the upper right corner of the recipe before setting up the print function on your computer. I have never had any trouble since I found that.

    I enjoy reading and cooking some of the recipes, but wondered is there an option where you can just print the recipe and not the photograph as it uses so much ink? if not can this be done?

    you need to click on the printer image at the left hand side of screen
    you should then get an option to "remove images"

    Yes Sandy there is. Open up a Word document and then just copy and paste the section or sections you want. It will take a couple of copying and pasting clicks but you don't need to include the photo at all. I do it all the time.

    Thanks Stormy for your help. I do like the way Coles recipes are set up as they give you the option if you want photo, ingredients, comments etc. before printing, so easy. I will definitely remember your tip though.
