Raspberry Slices recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes

These lightly spiced raspberry slices have a pastry bottom, topped with a thick layer of raspberry jam and a crumbly topping. Perfect for a mid-afternoon treat with a cup of tea, or with a dollop of cream for dessert.


  • 225g plain flour
  • 85g golden caster sugar
  • 140g butter, diced
  • 1 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 8 tbsp. smooth raspberry jam
  • 2 tsp. caster sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 21cm square baking tin with parchment paper.

  2. Put flour, sugar and butter into a bowl and cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or two bread knives until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the milk, cinnamon and cloves until combined.

  3. Press 3/4 of the mix into the tin firmly and then bake for 15-20 minutes. Top with jam, scatter over the rest of the flour mix and then sprinkle on the sugar. Bake for a further 5-10 minutes or until the top is golden.

Let these slices cool in the tin before you take them out, otherwise they'll end up falling to pieces. Recipe serves around 8-12, depending on how big you cut them!
