12 Servings

200g CSR Soft Brown Sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
110g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
3⁄4 cup desiccated coconut
Extra coconut to decorate

Rich Chocolate Icing:
1 cup of CSR Icing Sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp of butter (approx. 10g)
1 1⁄2 tbsp hot water

Preheat oven to 175°C then grease and line a rectangular slice tin (19cm x 29cm) with baking paper.
Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a bowl.
Sift in flour, baking powder and cocoa and mix well, stir in coconut.
Spread mixture into tin and bake for approx. 20-25 minutes or until firm.
Remove from oven and spread with Rich Chocolate Icing while slice is still hot, then sprinkle with extra coconut.
Allow to cool before cutting - slice should be slightly chewy.

For the Icing:
Mix CSR Icing Sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl, add butter and hot water, mix well until smooth.
Icing should spread easily, if it is too thick add a little more hot water to allow it to spread well.
Tip: To make this recipe dairy free, substitute the butter for coconut oil.
