Chocolate coconut slice

It's a weeknight and you realise you need to make something for a work fundraising morning tea. It is raining and cold and the thought of going to the shop is downright repulsive. So you open the pantry, pull out some ingredients and hope for the best.

This was one occasion, which while not refined or attractive, delivered a tasty treat easy to prepare and share. 

With just a few ingredients, this slice is perfect with a cup of tea and if you want to make it a little sweeter make some icing and slather it on. 




Ingredients: 
  • 125g melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tablespoon crushed almonds
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
Method:
  • Pre-heat oven to 160ÂșC fan-forced
  • Grease a 15cm x 10cm pan
  • Mix melted butter and brown sugar together
  • Add the cocoa powder and mix until well combined
  • Stir in the egg and yoghurt
  • Sift together plain flour and self-raising flour and add to wet ingredients
  • Mix in crushed almonds and desiccated coconut
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until firm and cooked through
  • Cool before slicing. 
You can serve dusted with icing sugar, covered in icing or warm with ice-cream. If you don't like almonds or are allergic, remove them. If you want it to be extra chocolatey, add some chocolate chips. This is a flexible recipe that can be tailored to suit many different tastes.
