Posted 2016-03-10 by Enchanting Temptationsfollow

I remember having these as a kid at parties and school functions and they've always been a soft spot in my memories. This soft and sweet slice is the perfect combination of rich chocolate and coconut that smells just as amazing it tastes!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 18 servings

Ingredients
Slice:
150g butter, melted and cooled
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of plain flour
1/3 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup desiccated coconut

Icing:
1 1/2 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
30g butter, finely chopped
2 tablespoons boiling water (extra water can be used if the icing is too thick, or extra cocoa if its too thin)

Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (for a conventional oven).
  • Grease a 20x30cm lamington pan and line with greaseproof paper.
  • Place the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a large bowl and stir until combined.

  • Sift the flour and cocoa into the liquid mixture. Add the coconut and stir through.
  • Spread evenly into the pan.
  • Place the slice into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until just firm. Set aside.

  • Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
  • Add butter and boiling water, stir until combined.

  • Spread the warm slice with icing.

  • Sprinkle the remaining coconut and refrigerate for at least an hour before removing from the pan and slicing.
