Bake At Home: Coconut Pyramids

Bake At Home: Coconut Pyramids

Super simple and delicious, these Coconut Pyramids have been a popular gluten free favourite in our Bakery for years. Enjoy making this traditional teatime treat at home.

Tip: If you don’t like Cherries, try experimenting with other candied fruits or by dipping the points in melted chocolate after baking and once Pyramids are cooled.

Makes 12


  • 7 Egg Whites
  • 1 lb White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 lb Desiccated Coconut
  • 6 Glacé Cherries – Cut in halves (Optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 170-180°C, line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
  3. Add in the granulated sugar and desiccated coconut, stirring to combine.
  4. Leave the mixture to soak for an hour, allowing the egg whites to absorb the sugar and coconut.
  5. Using your hands create 12 evenly shaped pyramids/cones, lightly wet hands with cold water first to help stop the mixture sticking too much. Don’t worry about achieving perfect shapes – this adds to the rustic charm!
  6. Finish by topping each pyramid point with a Glacé Cherry half and bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove from oven and leave to cool on tray.
