Chocolate Coconut Slice


Today I was feeling lethargic and whenever that happens, look out! Either I go into a music frenzy, playing all of my old favourites (Def Leppard and early Madonna full force baby!) or I become a stir crazy baker. Or I do both at the same time. Which is exactly what I did today. Β In our family we do everything to music. It just makes doing anything way more fun!

I decided to bake my mom’s classic recipe, Chocolate Coconut Slice.
So put your music on, get your groove on and get baking!
  • 1/2 c. Butter
  • 1/3 c. Brown sugar
  • 11/4c. Flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1c. Brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2c. Chopped walnuts
  • 1c. Coconut
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 11/4c. Icing sugar
  • 1/3c. Cocoa
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 5 tsp. hot water or hot coffee
Measure first 4 ingredients into a bowl. Crumble together.
Press into a 9×13 ungreased pan.
Beat eggs until foamy. Add rest of the ingredients and stir well.
Spread over bottom layer.
Bake at 350 oven for 30 minutes.
Cool then frost.
Stir all ingredients in a small bowl, adding more liquid if needed to spread.
Note:Β I keep this cake covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.


Happy baking!
