    Chocolate Coconut Slice by Kiwi Kathy

    I selected Kiwi Kathy's slice to make as part of the Recipe Swap for March held in the Aus/NZ Forum.

    This slice was not posted as a gluten-free recipe, but I made a few small substitutes to make this recipe suitable.

    My family loved it icon_smile.gif Such an easy slice to make and budget friendly too. I didn't count how many pieces made, but more like 24 than 16.

    I used all gluten-free ingredients. For the plain flour used in the recipe, I used 1/4 cup sorghum flour and 1/4 cup ready blended gluten-free flour (store bought). For the self-raising flour, I used a bought blended gluten-free flour.

    Posting this to share and show how easy it is to make a non-gluten-free recipe suitable. Eating gluten-free doesn't need to be expensive.

    What was the difference in the two blended gf flours you used(store bought) or did you use the same one? icon_question.gif

    wave.gif Hi Robin

    Both blended flours used were ORGRAN brand. The mix of flours is the same, though the Self-raising variety has added baking powder. I guess you could just use a blended flour and add in some baking powder

    To make a self-raising flour- 2 teaspoons of (gluten-free) baking powder should be added and sifted through 1 cup of flour.

    So for this recipe you could use the 1/2 cup all-purpose blended flour called for plus an additional 1/3 cup. Add in 2/3 teaspoon of a gluten-free baking poweder (this will substitute for the 1/3 cup self raising all-purpose flour called for)

    In Australia, Ward's brand baking powder is gluten-free.

    This was a very yummy slice. I expected the base would be like a biscuit/cookie base, but it was more like a really thick, fudgy cakey base.

    Already I have made this slice twice in the week and my family have gobbled it all. A winner slice for my home
