“Just a little something I make for my kids to take to school. I use half the amount of cocoa in the icing so it's not too strong.”

Directions

  1. Place butter, sugar, coconut, egg, sifted flours and cocoa in a bowl. Mix very well.
  2. Press mixture into a greased 20cm x 20cm cake pan, I like to line it with baking paper. This makes it easier to get out of the pan.
  3. Bake in a 180°C or 350°F oven for 15 minutes. The original says 20, but I find it comes out a bit dry.
  4. Allow to cool a little on a cake rack while you prepare the Icing.
  5. ICING:
  6. Sift icing and cocoa into a small bowl stir in butter and enough milk to make it just spreadable, dough constancy, not runny.
  7. Spread onto slice while it's still warm.
  8. Sprinkle with a little extra coconut.
  9. Once cool, slice into finger shape slices about 3x1-inch. This keeps well in either pantry or fridge in an air tight container. Even though I don't think it will last long enough.
