Fudgy Chocolate Coconut Brownies!!

 This one is for all you sweet toothed and chocolate lovers out there!! 

These are so easy to make and taste sooooo chocolaty, they are dense and have a slight gooey, chewy, rich centre. 
It's hard to eat just one at a time!!

Mixture makes about 16 Brownies.

10 minutes prep time.
40 minutes cooking time.

100g / 4oz Cocoa Powder - I use Green and Black Organic, it is rich and chocolaty.
250g / 9oz Butter
500g / 1lb 2oz Golden Caster Sugar
4 Eggs beaten
100g / 4oz Dessicated Coconut
100g / 4oz Self Raising Flour

Pre-heat the oven to 160°C, 320°F, or gas mark 4.

Line a 21cm square tin with parchment paper.

In a large saucepan gently melt the butter and sugar with the cocoa powder, stirring all the time so the mixture doesn't catch.

Take the saucepan off the heat and let it cool slightly.

When slightly cooled, quickly stir in the beaten eggs a bit at a time until it's all combined and shiny.

Stir in the dessicated coconut and then the flour, don't over mix or the brownies will become tough.

Pour into the tin and bake in the oven for 40 minutes, check it after 30 minutes and cover if it's starting to brown too much around the edges. It is cooked when a cocktail stick comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out and cut into squares.

Enjoy one with a nice cup of espresso, the coffee brings out the flavour of the chocolate and visa versa!!


  1. Well they are gooey, chocolatey and absolutely delicious. There won't be many left tomorrow lol

  2. it looks yummy!!!! i just made cookies last night but i may have to give these a go next week when i want my chocolate fix :)

  3. Now how about something coffee flavoured for the ones that don't like chocolate flavours

  4. The whole point of Brownies are that they are chocolate, there are cakes called Blondies, they are like Brownies but not chocolate, maybe i will make some and post them for you xx
