August 6, 2011 3:35 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Here we have a recipe for a gluten-free coconut slice, using a couple of gluten-free flours and Orgran’s gluten-free gluten (GFG). The use of rice syrup makes this slice not so sweet as one made with golden syrup – if you want a sweeter slice, use golden syrup instead.

Lemon icing:

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tsp grated lemon rind
  • 30g margarine or butter
  • 1 tsp hot water
  • 2 tsp lemon juice

Preheat oven to 170°C (340°F) and grease a Lamington tin.
1. Melt the margarine and syrup over a low heat.
2. Combine all the dry ingredients with the lightly beaten egg and cold water.
3. Pour in the melted margarine and syrup.
4. When well combined, press into a well-greased 28 cm x 18 cm x 4cm (11 in x 7 in x 1.5 in) Lamington tin.
5. Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes.
6. When cool, spread with lemon icing and cut into squares.
To make the lemon icing:
1. Sift the icing sugar into a bowl.
2. Combine the soft margarine, lemon juice, grated lemon rind and hot water, and stir until the margarine melts.
3. Mix into icing sugar and beat until it is smooth.
