Ingredients

  • 125g butter, melted

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C. Grease and line a rectangular slice tin (19cm x 29cm) with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa and mix well, stir in coconut.
  3. Spread mixture into tin and bake for approx. 20-25 mins or until firm.
  4. Remove from oven and spread with Rich Chocolate Icing while slice is still hot, then sprinkle with extra coconut. Allow to cool before cutting - slice should be slightly chewy.
  5. For the Icing, mix soft icing mixture and cocoa powder into a bowl, add butter and hot water, mix well until smooth. Icing should spread easily, if it is too thick add a little more hot water to allow it to spread well.
