Chocolate-coconut slice


Three of the boys have been away at their Dad’s for Easter and I know they’ll be back some time today. Feeling vaguely hospitable, I thought I’d make them something to nibble on once they walked through the door.
What follows is a basic chocolate slice, but I’ve made it in the thermomix, mainly to save time on washing up.

ingredients for slice
125g butter
160g brown sugar
160g self raising flour
10g(or 2 tbsp) cocoa
60g coconut
1 egg

ingredients for icing:
130g sugar (if using thermomix) or 130g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp softened butter
1½ tbsp milk

Firstly, if using thermomix, mill the sugar for the icing for 10 seconds on speed 10, then set aside.

Melt butter in thermomix at 100C speed soft for 3 minutes.
Stir through the sugar at speed 4 for 10 seconds and then add the egg. Mix at speed 5 for 5 seconds until egg is combined.
Stir through cocoa,flour and coconut at speed 5 for 10 seconds until combined.

Spread in a slice tin and cook 15-20 mins at 180°C.

Ice while still hot by mixing all the icing ingredients together in a bowl (don’t forget your milled sugar!) and then spread on top of the warm slice.
Sprinkle with coconut or whatever else takes your fancy.

    Now that looks quick and easy, I might make this next time I’m taking a plate of goodies to work.

    You mean – the Thermomix doesn’t cook it and ice it too??

    For us Americans, would you post pictures of the Thermomix? and its attachments (if any)? We don’t have anything like it here, that I can tell from the name anyway.

    Love your blog.

Don't be shy... say something!
