I’m no Donna Hay

and I don’t even really like cooking, to be honest (the sheer day to day “what are we going to eat ..and the I’mmmmm Hunnnnnngggrrry” really gets me down)  but i still thought I would share this quick and easy and very yummy slice that the kids will devour in no time at all.

Now that I think about it, perhaps I should find a recipe that isn’t quite so tasty, but they still eat it, and then it might last a little longer.  Anyhow.  I am not so organised as to have a photo of the finished slice, but its so so simple, you dont really need a picture to get the idea!

1 cup coconut
1 cup SR flour
2 tabs cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (125g) butter or margerine
1 tabs water
2 tabs syrup

Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, stir together well.  Melt butter,syrup and water together (microwave works fine) Tip over dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Press into try and bake moderate oven for 20 minutes.  Ice while warm (with simple icing sugar, cocoa and hot water icing)

That is all there is to it. Super easy to double, and if you have kids at the right age for them to be figuring out measuring, a great one for them too.  And it travels well – this is my go to slice for picnics and outings where a robust type of food is required!

The bell has rung, so I had better go and take this very slice out of the oven.  Let me know if you make this one and what you think of it!



  1. Well I hope you come up with another equally delicious recipe for the blog hop ;-)
    Aren't her photos divine?

  2. Love the pics.
    We've been making the slice on the back of the rice bubble's pack. It's like LCM's. You just add marshmallows and caramels to the rice bubbles and melt together. Delicious.

  3. Hi Sharon!
    It's been a while since I have blogsurfed to your neck of the woods...I love all the pages from a couple posts down. Oh, how I wish I could scrap multiple pages at a time like you. For me, it's like giving birth, only 1 at a time. LOL
    To answer your question on my blog, I used a Martha Stewart elephant punch. Can you get them in Australia? I could easily get one for you if you can't. Let me know! And thanks as always for your good thoughts and prayers for my Ryan :*)
