Expert Tips and FAQs


Why bởi I need two different types of coconut?

Desiccated coconut is finely ground coconut và has less texture than shredded coconut, which is grated coconut & is usually in short, thin strips. The desiccated coconut works as the thickener in the topping và the shredded coconut is what creates the delicious crunchy texture.


Can I substitute the jam?

Yes, you could quite easily substitute the jam with a citrus marmalade, lemon curd or a nut spread.


What can I substitute the coconut with?

I would not recommend substituting the coconut in this recipe. If you"re not fond of coconut, perhaps my Lemon Crumble bars would be a better choice!


How bởi vì you store the Raspberry Coconut Slice?

The best way khổng lồ store the slice is in individual pieces, in an airtight container for up to 5 days.


Can I use a different shaped và sized tin?

Yes, you certainly can. Depending on what you use, your base may be thicker or thinner & you will need to adjust the baking time khổng lồ suit.


If I use a non-stick baking tin, vì I still have lớn grease and line it?

I would strongly recommend greasing & lining the tin with baking paper. The jam can run down the sides of the base và become quite sticky while baking, which makes it difficult to lớn remove the slice from the tin.


What temperature should I have my conventional oven on?

If your oven is not fan-forced, I would suggest increasing the temperature by 10-20 degrees Celsius & keeping a close watch during the baking time.
