Delicious Coconut Dream

You will need...

For the base
200g Unsalted butter, softened
180g Soft light brown sugar
360g Plain flour

For the topping
4 Large eggs
350g Soft light brown sugar
¾ tsp Baking powder
250g Desiccated coconut
100g Chopped pecans or walnuts
1 ¾ tsp vanilla extract

I am always making cakes and although they are delicious, it usually takes quite a lot of time and preparation and after making some delicious tray bake Rocky Road I decided to embark on another tray bake recipe I have wanted to try. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed, they were moist and crumbly and full of flavour! Here’s how I made them…

Preheat oven to 175c (350F), Gas mark 4. Line the tin with grease proof paper
Cream together the butter and sugar for around 5 minutes until light and fluffy add the flour and mix well
Spread the base mixture into the bottom of the tin and spread evenly. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes
To make the topping, beat the eggs, baking powder, flour, brown sugar and salt and mix well. Stir in the coconut and nuts along with the vanilla extract
Pour the topping over the baked layer and pop back into the oven for 15 minutes, or until the topping has set. Leave to cool and slice accordingly. 
Serve and enjoy :-)
