These coconut slices are moist and delicious. I made them first for Chalk Farm Disability Centre’s Summer Fair where, I am happy to say, they went down a treat. They are super easy and quick to make that even a novice baker could do these.

Coconut Slices

  • 200g plain chocolate
  • 100g unsalted butter, softened
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 200g desiccated coconut
  • 100g sultanas
  • 100g glacé cherries
  1. Line a 23cm square tin with baking parchment.
  2. Place the chocolate into a heatproof bowl suspended over a saucepan of barely simmering water until melted. Remove the bowl from the heat and stir until smooth. Pour the chocolate into the prepared tin spread to level. Refrigerate until set.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan.
  4. Place the butter and sugar into a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer and beat until pale and creamy.
  5. Beat in the eggs one at a time and beating well after each addition until fully incorporated.
  6. Stir in the coconut, sultanas and glacé cherries until fully combined. Spoon the mixture over the chocolate and level with the back of a spoon.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 – 35 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Leave to cool completely in the tin before turning it out and slicing.
