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 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!

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

  • Grease and line a 22cm X 32cm rectangular slice tin with baking paper.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Firmly press the mixture into the prepared tin and place into the fridge.
  • 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.
  • Spread the frosting over the slice, sprinkle with the extra coconut and place back into the fridge to set completely. Cut into slices.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

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!
