This is one of those "go to" desserts. It's silly how easy it is to make and it's just more-ish
, as my mother in-law would say. We had a slight frosting malfunction so we ended up not icing it at all. That's how I would recommend you do it, too. BUT- if you're a frosting hound, like I know so many of you are, finish it off with your favorite homemade chocolate icing.
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour MIXED WITH 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 cup plus 1 Tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease or line a 9x6 or shallow slice pan. Combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a medium bowl. Mix well until a soupy mixture forms.
Stir in flour and cocoa.
Stir in coconut, mix well, pour into prepared pan and spread evenly with your spatula. Bake for 30 minutes or until sides start to slightly pull away from paper.
Cut into tiny squares (this baby is chewy, you'll want it in small doses) and serve with a cup of black coffee or your favorite cabernet.
This is just a little slice of Australia for you... ;) so cheesy. can't help myself.
