This new and improved Lemon & Coconut Slice recipe is absolutely perfect! A beautiful tangy base topped with a creamy lemon frosting... it seriously doesn't get any better than this!

Isn’t is funny how some recipes are so good that it doesn’t matter how old they are, they just get better and better. And that’s exactly the case with this Lemon & Coconut Slice. It’s old fashioned yumminess at it’s very best.

This new and improved Lemon & Coconut Slice recipe is absolutely perfect! A beautiful tangy base topped with a creamy lemon frosting... it seriously doesn't get any better than this!

This Lemon & Coconut Slice was actually one of the very first recipes on my blog when it started a few years ago. Since then I’ve made it over and over again until the recipe was just right. Yep, this new and improved version is exactly that…. even better than the awesome original!

This new and improved Lemon & Coconut Slice recipe is absolutely perfect! A beautiful tangy base topped with a creamy lemon frosting... it seriously doesn't get any better than this!

So what’s changed in my Lemon & Coconut Slice recipe? Well two things… you see, for years I had used the exact same lemon coconut slice recipe and loved it – it really was perfect. But then I got a Thermomix and so the recipe needed to be updated to include Thermomix instructions too. And my original recipe used the yummiest lemon glaze – but the only problem was that it would set really quickly, so you had to move super fast to spread it over the slice! And so I started experimenting with a more ‘frosting-like’ icing, which is just as yummy as the original, but way easier to spread.

Anyway, regardless of what it’s called, this lemon & coconut slice recipe tastes even more amazing as the original (and that’s saying a LOT!!). There are now Thermomix instructions, as well as of course, the good old conventional instructions. And that frosting… OMG you’ll love it. It’s so lovely and creamy and is super easy to spread. And because this slice is no-bake, you can have it whipped up in no time at all (which means eating it sooner too…. yipppeeee!).

Course Slices
Cuisine Baking
Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 16

Ingredients

  • 80 g butter
  • 250 g (3/4 cup) sweetened condensed milk
  • 250 g plain sweet biscuits (like Arnotts Marie)
  • 90 g (1 cup) desiccated coconut
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • grated lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • For the lemon frosting:
  • 360 g icing sugar
  • 90 g butter
  • 5 tbs lemon juice
  • 3 tbs desiccated coconut

Instructions

  1. Grease and line a 22cm X 32cm rectangular slice tin with baking paper.

  2. Cut the lemon rind off a lemon with a sharp knife (try to cut the yellow skin without too much of the white). Place the lemon rind into the TM bowl and chop finely on Speed 8 for 50 seconds or until it has a finely grated feel (you will need to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times).

  3. Add the biscuits and crush on Speed 7 for 5-10 seconds or until the biscuits resemble fine crumbs. Set the biscuits and lemon rind aside.

  4. Place the butter into the TM bowl and melt on Speed 3, 60 degrees, 2 minutes (you may need to scrape the sides of the bowl down with a spatula after 1 minute).

  5. Add the condensed milk. Place the lid and MC onto the top of the TM. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze on top of the lid (the juice will drip into the bowl, while the MC will stop any pips from getting in.

    Mix on Speed 3 for 5 seconds until well combined.

  6. Add the dry biscuit mixture and the coconut to the TM bowl. Mix all ingredients together on Speed 4 for 5 seconds. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and mix again on Speed 4 for an extra 10 seconds.

  7. Firmly press the mixture into the prepared tin and place into the fridge.

  8. Place the icing sugar, butter and lemon juice into the TM bowl and mix on Speed 4 for 20 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Mix on Speed 4 for an extra 30 seconds.

  9. Spread the frosting over the slice, sprinkle with the extra coconut and place back into the fridge to set completely. Cut into slices.

  10. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

  1. Oh my, this looks amazing. What’s not to like? Two times the recipes means twice as much baking and twice as much making, and twice as much tasting which means that two times the slices makes them twice as nice!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oooh cream cheese gets me every time! Yum! That’s fantastic to hear Eva 🙂

  16. Lucy, you have excelled yourself. This looks to die for. Lemon and coconut are two of my favourite ingredients. I will try this over the weekend 🙂

      Oh thank you so much! You’re very lovely!

  17. Oh my goodness I am one happy reader. Not only are lemon and coconut two of my very favourite things, your timing is perfect; I also have some entertaining upcoming. BOOK. MARKED and THANK YOU! #teamIBOT

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Fabulous!! I’d love to hear what you think 🙂

  18. I’m going to call this the ‘get in my gob’ lemon slice. Looks so delicious, I can feel the glands in my mouth contracting at the thought of that lemony goodness.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Haha yes I like the sound of that name 🙂

  19. Amanda says:

    Hello everyone

        Hi I have made this slice twice as my hubby loves it , He is licking the spoons right now haha. Thanks for sharing it .

        1. Lucy Mathieson says:

          Hahaha he sounds like my hubby!!

  20. I love lemon slice. I have my own best recipe though (it’s no bake!) because I’m lazy. haha. 😉 I love how simple lemon slice is to make but how delicious it is.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Couldn’t agree more Kell!

  21. I will be trying this for sure! I had a lemon slice recipe but this one sounds way better than the one I was using. Thank you for sharing Lucy x

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      I’m sure yours was just as lovely! x

  22. Lisa says:

    Ji Lauryn, I made your beautiful lemon slice yesterday anf left in the fridge overnight to take to a friend’s birthday today. Aaargh it didn’t set. What did I do wrong? Can you help?
    Lisa 🙁

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh my gosh Lisa! That’s so strange! I’ve never heard of it not setting before. I really have no idea why that would have happened. Is it the icing or the base that hasn’t set?

      1. Lisa says:

        Hi Lauryn and thanks for replying. I figured out why the slice didn’t set. Silly mistake. I used the whole tin of condensed milk instead of half. Lol it still tasted amazing I just put it in the freezer. Will make it correctly next time 🙂

        1. Bake Play Smile says:

          Aha! Glad you still got to eat it! 🙂

  23. han says:

    this looks amazing and i am going to try definitely! I love lemon slice too, so easy but so rewarding!!

    x han

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Thank you! Isn’t lemon slice just the best thing ever!

  24. Claire says:

    I made this last night. My mum and I have enjoyed far too many pieces already. So so so so delicious! Thank you 🙂

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh I’m so glad that you enjoyed it. It’s my fave too… and yep I always eat way too much of it as well!

  25. Debbie says:

    love this slice have been making it now for about 30 years…but I substitute with orange and it’s delicious ..must try the lemon …it’s definitely a favourite that has been passed down in our family

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh wow that’s such a great idea! I’m definitely going to try that!

  26. Sam Brown says:

    Hi Lucy – I understand the measurements of the tin used is 22cm x32cm, Can you please tell me what is the appropriate “Depth” should be (In centimetres). I own a 1 cm depth and I think this migt be too shallow and very happy to shop for something new if you recommend. Can’t wait to try out this recipe – thank you so much – Sam

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Sam, hmm yes I think a 1cm depth will be too shallow as it is quite medium height slice. I sometimes use my 22X32cm, but other times I use a smaller one if I want it to be taller. Any standard sized rectangular slice tin that’s at least 4cm deep should be fine. xx

      1. Sam Brown says:

        Hi Lucy -Thank you for your reply, (on tin depth) much appreciated! ~ Sam

        1. Bake Play Smile says:

          Anytime Sam!!

  27. Kristy-lee says:

    Hi Lucy,

    This looks absolutely delicious. I’m trying to use what I have in the pantry and the only biscuits I have in there are sponge fingers…. Do you think they would work?
    Thanks, Kristy x

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Kristy-Lee, I can’t see why not! Give it a shot! Always good to use up any last bits and pieces you have 🙂

  28. Greta says:

    Looks delicious. Do you think it would freeze well?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Greta, I havent frozen this one before! But I have heard of people who have had success doing so. If you were going to freeze it, I’d pop it into an airtight container with baking paper between each layer of slices. 🙂

  29. kim says:

    Just made this slice but substituted orange juice for lemon juice. Thankfully my daughter loves it too, or I would eat the whole slice on my own

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      What a fantastic idea! I’m definitely going to try that next time!

  30. Ellie says:

    Hello, can’t wait to make this delicious slice for my sons 4th birthday party – just wondering if you think I can make this ahead of time and freeze it?
    Thanks,
    Ellie

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Ellie, I think I would make the base and freeze it, then ice it when you need it. Although I do know of people who have made it and frozen the whole thing perfectly fine!!

  31. Rhiannon says:

    I made this a few hours ago while making dinner and just snuck a whole piece on the way to bed. Yummm! . Having a few older lemons I needed to use up. I added more juice than one lemon ( always varies with fruit! ) to the base and extra zest too. I also sprinkled zest on top with the coconut. Which I use flakes instead of dedicated because that’s what I had. I didn’t blitz the rind in the TMX either as previousmy I ‘ve found it’s just easier to use my rasp zester directly into bowl, not losing zest all over the lid.
    Soooo happy with it! I love lemon so it may be too strong for some but I don’t think it will be. Perfect balance of tang and sweetness and a yummy fudge like base with coconut. How can you go wrong! I cello bagged some bars up with a yellow raffia bow to take to visit a new Mum for coffee tomrorow and to thank a Neighbour for sharing some fresh produce. As well as a nice little stash for me. This is definately going to be a repeat recipe. Thankyou!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      I love your tips!!! And yes, I’m a big fan of lemon, so the lemony the better I say!!

  32. Kelly says:

    Hi Lucy,

    Hows the base meant to be? is it meant to be quite soft or is it meant to set hard? the last 3 times I have made it the base has stayed quite soft but still holds together and cuts okay. Tastes amazing.

    Thanks

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Kelly, that sounds absolutely fine! If you’d like it a little harder, just reduce the amount of condensed milk slightly. xx

  33. Dona says:

    Hi. Can you please tell me how long the Lemon and Coconut Slice takes to set? Can it be made in the morning and be ready to serve in the afternoon?
    Thanks Dona

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely! I fine overnight is best for cutting perfect slices – but a few hours is perfectly fine!

  34. Belinda says:

    Hi, I made this for mothers day yesterday and was a big hit. I used western star spreadable so the base didn’t quite set as well as it should but it still tasted amazing. next time i will use a smaller pan that stated as i like it tall ( mine was quite flat). They have all asked me to make it again so must have been delicious. love your web site xx still my go to one when I need to take a plate anywhere.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Oh thats so awesome to hear! Thank you for your lovely feedback – I really appreciate it (and it’s made my day!). Hehe yep I’m a fan of nice, tall slices too!

  35. Anna says:

    Ok. What did I do wrong? I even measured the tin size , followed instructions & the slice is all of 2cm high?? Help please.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Anna, I don’t think you did anything wrong then! The slice isn’t usually very high at all. If you’d prefer it to be taller, you could use a smaller tin. xx

  36. Louise Cimarosti says:

    Great recipe Lucy! I made this for bible study last night and was a big hit.
    It’s sour and sweet which is lovely. I am going to make two more batches for events I have this weekend!
    I made the icing (conventional recipe) in the food processor which made it easier when the butter wasn’t quite room temperature.

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Fantastic! It really is the perfect combo of sweet and sour!

  37. Tina says:

    Made this today, first tome ever making lemon slice. Amazing! And easy. Thankyou, this is definately a fav in our place now

  38. Carla says:

    Can you freeze it?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Sure can!

  39. jayne says:

    Made this for my friends baby shower the other day Lucy and it was sensational! thank goodness I was sharing it otherwise I would have eaten the lot – it is just too good!!

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hehehe I’m so glad you enjoyed it!

  40. Catherine says:

    Definitely need twice the icing for one slice. Made this and there was nowhere near enough icing to even thinly cover the slice (not to the thickness in your pictures). Other than that slice was delicious.

  41. Paula says:

    Hi Lucy, how long would the base keep in the freezer ???

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Paula, if you double wrap it in plastic wrap then a layer of foil and pop it into an airtight container in the freezer it should be fine for a couple of months!

  42. Jodie McCrowe says:

    Can this be frozen it is way to much for 2 people? Other than that love it

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Absolutely!!!!

  43. Crystal says:

    Can I freeze this slice?

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Sure can!

  44. Jacorine says:

    Hi could I use limes instead of lemons? as I was given a bunch of limes to make something for my hubby’s work colleagues . Will it still taste as good with limes ?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely!!!!!

  45. Sean Mahan says:

    These are just perfect, man, I can’t even express how glad I am to have found this recipe. Thank you!

  46. Sharon Reynolds says:

    You obviously love your Thermi but I love the fact that you retain the good old fashioned recipes too. One day I might venture into the world of Thermomix and make my life easier, but for now, I love the feeling of freedom when I’m in the kitchen, so I don’t mind how long a recipe takes. To date, every recipe I have tried from Bake, Play, Smile has been a hit. Your selections are a lovely mix of old and new, so thank you for that.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Sharon, I do love my Thermomix BUT I also still love cooking by hand too!!! It’s nice to just potter around the kitchen!! Thank you so much for your lovely comment – I really do appreciate that so much! xx

  47. Sarah says:

    Hello there. I originally made this a long time ago (lots of times) before it was new and improved. I’m so sorry but I have made the new version this morning and I prefer the old one! But I can’t remember what difference there was in the old one! Can you please tell me what to add/remove to make it how the recipe used to be please (the normal recipe not the thermomix. I have no idea what thermomix even means haha maybe it’s not a U.K. Thing!)

  48. Adam says:

    Made this last night after receiving a bag of lemons from a friend. Using the ‘conventional’ method it was really easy but found the 5tbs of lemon juice in the frosting to be too much – when I pulled it out of the fridge this morning to cut up there was a lot of liquid that had seeped out around the edges. Might halve the lemon juice in the frosting next time and supplement with some extra zest.

  49. Zoe says:

    Made this slice in my thermomix this morning, it’s setting in the fridge, cannot wait to taste it! Love lemon and coconut, so good. Not sure if I can hang out til my husbands home from work to have as dessert after dinner..! Am enjoying looking through the rest of your thermomix adjusted recipes, thank you!!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!!! Enjoy!! This is such a fave here too!

  50. Sara Nebeling says:

    We just got back to the US from a real nice trip to Auckland. I was so taken by this “Lemon Slice” that I was trying them all over town. This recipe looks jut like the one I loved the most! I can hardly wait to try it but I think I need to get a proper Slice pan ( or two!) to bake it! I’m so happy to have found this recipe! Thanks

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!! Enjoy!! xx

  51. Carol says:

    I use half biscuits and half weetbix crush. It’s the family fav!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Awesome idea!!

  52. Tricia Pierce says:

    Thank you so very much for this recipe…. made it for a school event.. it went in a flash :)…

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!! I’m thrilled to hear that!

  53. Rose Feldman says:

    I live outside of the US. Any ideas what I can use instead of condensed milk? and icing sugar?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Rose, what country are you in? I’m not in the US either – I’m in Australia and can buy both of these. xx

  54. Chantelle says:

    I made this last night and it is absolutely delicious, my new fave! However my frosting did not set, when I cut my slice into bite sized peices the icing just melted instantly. I used icing sugar, or should I’ve used icing sugar mixture? What have I done wrong??

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Chantelle, I’ve made it with both pure icing sugar and icing sugar mixture and have never had any issues with either. Pure icing sugar will definitely set harder than mixture if that helps!? Otherwise, I’m not sure!!!

  55. Laura says:

    These turned out great and so simple to make, the kids loved helping out! Definitely a keeper… thanks for sharing! 🙂

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! And definitely a great recipe for kids to help with! xx

  56. Tracey says:

    This is the absolute best…thank you. That frosting is to die for and is now my “go to” for any slice or cake. So creamy and fluffy.

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Tracey, thank you so much!!! That’s really lovely of you. I’m thrilled you enjoy the slice! xx

  57. C. Panchen says:

    After skimming through all the comments, and not finding anything about the type of milk used in this, I’d love to know if the ‘condensed milk’ is the same as ‘SWEETENED condensed milk’, which is quite thick. In Canada, condensed milk is much thinner, and not sweetened, so would act very differently in a recipe. I’m really wanting to make this recipe; it sounds amazing!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi there, sorry yes it’s sweetened condensed milk (very thick and very sweet!).

  58. Ciara says:

    Yum yum yum AMAZING. One of my favourites

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      One of mine too!!

  59. Sara says:

    Made this slice for my child’s school gala. Absolutely devine!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Yay!! i’m so happy to hear that!

  60. Renee says:

    Delicious! Love them lemony taste combined with coconut… yum!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

    I made this, this morning and at 6pm tonight the icing is still soft. Yes, it’s been in the fridge all day. I’m wondering if the 5 tablespoons lemon juice was meant to be 5 teaspoons???

      Hi Heather, it’s definitely 5 tbs – it’s totally fine if the icing is soft (if you used icing mixture instead of pure icing sugar that will also mean that it stays soft rather than setting hard). xx

    Hi. I made this slice yesterday and love it, but even having it in the fridge overnight, the icing is still a bit too soft & a little runny. Do you think if I only add 4 tbspn lemon juice that it might help with that?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Absolutely! Or you can add a but more icing sugar xx

    Made this lemon slice the other day, and it was delicious! I’ve always made the Womens Weekly version of this slice, but this one is much, much better. The texture is perfect, not dry, and the icing is lovely. Definately will make this recipe again! Keep up the good work.

    I have made this slice a lot. every one loves it and it is so easy. I vary the topping by adding lemon rind to the coconut when sprinkling o top. Adds a real zing,
