Pastry, jam, pineapple and coconut. It all sounds like a pretty good combination of flavors. And you’d be right! This Pineapple Coconut Slice has a layer of pastry topped with jam (I went for raspberry), pineapple pieces (tinned works great) and then a coconutty mixture, which turns beautifully golden after it’s been baked.
Yes, you have to make pastry for this, but it’s really not that tricky and you’re covering it with lots of toppings, so don’t worry too much about it. And the coconut mixture is quite stiff, so you have to scatter it over the top and press it down a bit, but it all works out in the end, and a little piece of pineapple peeking thought the coconut here and there gives a glimpse of what’s to come!
