Choc Chewy Coconut Slice





So what does one do with all that extra coconut fillings from kuih dadar? Well, we could stare at it all day or make coconut slices....yay!! So I surfed the net and found this recipe from Cadbury website

I modified the recipe a bit...oh oh.. you're gonna say...geez this cowboy will never learn, baking is about precision, accurate measurement but I am doomed to fail in baking and so why not a slight detour? Hehehe. So I added a little ...wait for it... hazelnut meal instead of just plain old all flour... get it? So, that it's extra nutty!!

Oh and guess what, we are NOT going to ice it with buttercream icing, we are gonna melt some real Cadbury cooking chocolate to layer the top. Am I awesome or what?

Moist Chewy Coconut Slice

Serves 24

Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons Cadbury® Bournville® Cocoa
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut
185 g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
extra coconut

CHOCOLATE ICING
1 ½ cups icing sugar
2 tablespoons Cadbury Bournville Cocoa
2 tablespoons butter, melted
hot water

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl. Add the sugar and coconut and stir well.
  2. Add the butter and egg and mix thoroughly.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into a lined 28 x 18 cm slab pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Leave in the pan to cool.
  5. When cold, make the icing. Sift the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl. Add the butter and enough hot water to make a thick but smooth consistency. After icing, sprinkle with the extra coconut. Cut into pieces and store in an airtight container.

Clever way to use up the coconut! Lovely recipe.

Thanks Ellie, what's even better is that the leftover coconut has been marinating in gula melaka and added brown sugar, when mixed in with hazelnut meal, was just divine to smell!
