What could be better than digging into a fudgy chocolate brownie for dessert? A family favourite, the brownie is the perfect after-dinner treat to enjoy before hopping into bed. However, this tasty sweet treat has a slight twist with a hint of coconut sure to tantalise your taste buds. 

They’re lovely warmed up and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or enjoyed on their own with a cuppa. 

Ingredients:

  • 100g cocoa 
  • 250g butter
  • 500g caster sugar 
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 100g self-raising flour 
  • 100g desiccated coconut 
  • Icing sugar, to dust 

Method: 

  1. Place cocoa, butter and sugar into a large saucepan and melt over a low heat, stirring regularly to avoid sticking. 
  2. Once cooled slightly, add eggs one at a time, stirring in between until well combined before adding flour and coconut. 
  3. Tip into tin lined 21cm square tin and cook for 45 minutes in a 180c preheated oven. Once cooked through, leave to rest until cooled and cut into squares. A dusting of icing sugar on top can be added if desired.
