Chocolate Coconut Slice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mumof2terrors

Just a little something I make for my kids to take to school. I use half the amount of cocoa in the icing so it's not too strong.

Warning DO NOT make this without laying down baking paper. As I didn't have any, I greased a semi-non-stick pan to cook this on and it stuck like concrete. I'm sure I would have rated this higher if the recipe made this clearer. That said, the pile of crumbs I was left with was very tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place butter, sugar, coconut, egg, sifted flours and cocoa in a bowl. Mix very well.
  2. Press mixture into a greased 20cm x 20cm cake pan, I like to line it with baking paper. This makes it easier to get out of the pan.
  3. Bake in a 180°C or 350°F oven for 15 minutes. The original says 20, but I find it comes out a bit dry.
  4. Allow to cool a little on a cake rack while you prepare the Icing.
  5. ICING:.
  6. Sift icing and cocoa into a small bowl stir in butter and enough milk to make it just spreadable, dough constancy, not runny.
  7. Spread onto slice while it's still warm.
  8. Sprinkle with a little extra coconut.
  9. Once cool, slice into finger shape slices about 3x1-inch. This keeps well in either pantry or fridge in an air tight container. Even though I don't think it will last long enough.
