Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for  Gluten and Dairy Free Coconut & Raspberry Slices.

t really is a small world, in my last post I shared I was heading down South to near Totnes to visit a frind.  On  facebook a lady posted a reply to my recipe saying that she lived near Totnes – unknown to both of us it turned out she is the mother-in-law of the friend I’m visiting sister!  What are the chances of that?

Yesterday I was down in London and bumped into two different people from Edinburgh I hadn’t seen in ages and then this morning I sat next to Professor Robert Winston on the train from London to Bristol.

Back to today’s recipe, I bought a giant bag of desiccated coconut from the supermarket recently so will be making a few coconut recipes.  A coconut and jam slice, I notice, is quite a popular gluten and dairy free option in tea rooms I’ve visited, so I decided to have a go at making my own.

I’ve used a shortbread style biscuit base, raspberry jam and a good sprinkling of toasted desiccated coconut.
