Apricot Coconut and Almond Slice Gluten Free

Serves 8
Prep time: 15mins
Cooking time: 20-25mins

You can use fresh or tinned fruit for this slice. If using fresh fruit, ensure it’s perfectly ripe as the cooking time is quite short.

  • 30 grams desiccated coconut

Grease a 24cm x 32cm slice tin and fully line with baking paper.

Preheat the oven to 160°C fan bake.

Combine the ground almonds, sugar, rice flour, coconut and the ginger together in a medium bowl.

Whisk the cooled butter, eggs, honey and vanilla together and stir into the dry ingredients.

Spoon the batter into the tin and spread to an even layer (it will be quite a thin layer). Arrange the apricot halves over the top, then scatter over the almonds.

Bake for about 20–25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean and the cake is firm to the touch.

To serve: Dust with icing sugar and serve warm or at room temperature with cream or yoghurt. 

Cook’s tip: If you want the fruit to have a glossy sheen, brush with a little warmed apricot jam about 10 minutes after it has come out of the oven.
