A lovely friend passed this recipe on to me after I sampled some at her house for morning tea one day. This would have to be one of the easiest slices I have made and one of the most popular amongst young and old!!! I whipped some up tonight for a morning tea I am hosting tomorrow.
1 1/4 cups SR flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
3/4 cup coconut ( I substitute rolled oats if I am low on coconut)
1/2 cup sugar
125g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat a moderate oven
Mix all ingredients together (how easy is that!)
Press into lined slice tin
Bake for 10-15 minutes (10 if you like your slice soft and cakey)
Ice with chocolate icing ( 1 1/2 cups icing sugar, 3 tablespoons cocoa sifted and 1-2 tablespoons milk mixed altogether to get a smooth but not runny consistency). Spread over cooled slice and decorate with coconut, sprinkles, grated chocolate or just leave plain its up to you.
I keep slice in the fridge in an airtight container for about 1 week. You could probably keep it there longer if it lasts that long in your household.
