Bake me happy: Coconut & passionfruit slice

There are things you learn in adulthood, and there is one thing I’ve learned about having a well-stocked pantry: one should always have a can of condensed milk lurking in there somewhere. Darling.

Because you never know when you might want to whip up a huge batch of cookies, crack open the can and dip in with a spoon {saved only for the most calling of times – break-ups, bad days and such} or this passionfruit and coconut slice.

Bake me happy: Coconut & passionfruit slice


1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup caster sugar
100g butter, melted
1 x 395g can of sweetened condensed milk
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp passionfruit pulp


♥ Preheat your own to 180°C. Lightly grease a 20cm x 20cm square tin and line with baking paper.
♥ In a medium-sized bowl combine the flour, coconut, sugar and melted butter. Mix together and then press into the tin. To smooth it over use the back of a metal spoon. Bake for 12 minutes, until golden brown.
♥ While the base is cooking, mix together the condensed milk, lemon juice and passionfruit pulp in a bowl. Pour onto the slice, once it’s cooked {it doesn’t matter if it’s hot}. Bake for 15 minutes until just firm.
♥ Set aside to cool and then cut into squares once cool enough.

What’s one thing that is always in your pantry?
