Raspberry Louise Slice

#dairyfree #glutenfree

Best tucked into straight from the fridge, one bite and the light coconut meruinge-like topping breaks to allow the cold raspberries to burst their brilliance inside your mouth. These aren’t meant to look perfect, let the jam ooze where it wants to ooze, and the raspberries stain the batter as they please. They’re pretty in their inconsistent vibrancy and taste a treat!
