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?

    Thanks for this yummy recipe! I wanted to bake something this morning and this will be perfect! I always have white chocolate chips and dried cranberries in my cupboard! Love the combination of the two and there are endless things you can make with them… especially with Christmas coming up!

  • Neek

    perfect for the fam bam as they come in from the shearing shed! Thanks for this. 🙂

    Now I just MUST try this out! I’ve never used condensed milk, it’s not really a big thing over here, but I keep seeing it in new recipes more often these days.. today is grocery shopping day, so I’ll add these ingredients on my shopping list 🙂

  • Janie at BfB

    I’m going to try this right now! Yum.


    Oh my goodness! I have everything except for the passionfruit. Must call and catch hubby while he is still at the shops. I love coconut and passionfruit. So much for watching what I eat.

    This is the first time in history I have all the listed ingredients. Thats a sign to make this I reckon.

  • I love this slice! I made it over here in my corner of Scotland and it just blew people away. Passionfruit doesn’t show up in cake that often here 🙂

  • Little Munch

    Just made this slice – it is so good! I used orange juice instead of lemon. Such a welcome treat after having done craft with my boys!!!
