1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1tsp baking powder
2 cups coconut
Thread coconut, for sprinkling on icing
3 cups icing sugar
A little boiling water
Preheat oven to 180C. Melt the butter, sugar and cocoa in a saucepan, then remove from heat.
Add flour, baking powder and coconut and mix until combined. Press the mixture into a baking paper-lined slice tin and bake for 20 minutes
Ice while warm and sprinkle with thread coconut. Cool, then slice and store in an airtight container.
For the icing, mix icing sugar, cocoa and butter with enough boiling water to make a thick smooth icing.
Mine all went pretty much to plan until slicing it out of the cake tin and bits started to fall apart from it. I quickly shoved mine in the fridge....saved!
Hubby's big smile as he was digging into not just one but two slices means it could not have tasted too bad!
