Coconut and jam slice

This classic slice is a winner every time!

A lovely biscuit base with chunky fruit jam and a light coconut crumble on top! Try to pick up a jar of some good quality jam with big ol’ pieces of fruit so you get a nice juicy burst with every bite. You can use any flavour jam you like, but raspberry, cherry and strawberry work well.

The crumble is so tasty and light making it the perfect match for the sweet jam filling. Enjoy!
