Women's Weekly Vintage Edition: Raspberry coconut slice


If there’s one thing we do well, its classic baking, and this one is right up there with the best.

For a simple yet delicious way to treat yourself this week, look no further than a gorgeous slice. The beauty of a slice is that you get all the sweetness and versatility of a biscuit, without the fiddliness of rolling and shaping individual biscuits. Just press or pour it all into a tin and bake or chill before slicing. Easy!

Chunky raspberry jam and toasty coconut flakes are a match made in heaven. In this retro recipe they come together on a buttery biscuit base for a truly classic treat.
