Chewy Chocolate Slice (with photo)
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:53:52 am »
Chewy Chocolate Slice
Converted from the Australian Women's Weekly "Baking Day" (thanks again Mich :-*)

Ingredients:
125g butter, roughly chopped
200g brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
75g plain flour
35g SR flour
10g cocoa
40g desiccated coconut

Icing:
160g icing sugar
1-2 tbsp cocoa powder
10g butter
1-2 tbsp hot water

Few tbsp desiccated coconut, extra

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line a slice pan.
2. Melt butter for 2 minutes/80 degrees/speed 2.
3. Add sugar and vanilla, set TMX to speed 3, then add egg through lid and beat for 20 seconds.
4. Add flours, cocoa and coconut. Mix for 10 seconds/speed 4, scrape sides of bowl and mix for a further 10 seconds/speed 4. Make sure there is not flour clumped on the blades.
5. Spread mixture into slice pan and bake for 30 minutes or until slice is firm.
6. Meanwhile, wash TMX and make icing.
7. Melt butter for a few seconds on 60 degrees. Add icing sugar, cocoa and 1 tbsp hot water. Mix for 10 seconds/speed 3-4. Check consistency and add a little more water if necessary.
8. Spread icing over hot cake, sprinkle with extra coconut and leave to cool completely in pan.

Yum yum ;D

members' comments

maddy - yum Amy....it has been many years since I've tasted this slice.

Tam - this was delicious!!! I only cooked mine for 20 mins as I always seem to burn the edges on my slices. I think you can get away with it on this slice as it doesn't matter if the middle is a little moist/fudgy. Next time I'll do 1 1/2 batches as it only filled my tray 3/4's the way - this always happens when I make a slice??? So yummy!!!! Thanks!!!

ES - I was just cutting this up and a slice found it's way into my mouth.  I've just eaten it and I think that the kids will love this in their lunchbox tomorrow.  I didn't have enough brown sugar so I used about 50g of Demerara sugar to make up a total of 180g. Next time I might even drop the sugar to 150g as it was still very sweet. It reminds me of Dede's chocolate crunch slice. Thanks Amy .

Suzanne -  this was delicious and enjoyed by us all, thanks Amy.

Denzelmum - I made this with only 160 g brown sugar and omit the coconut on icing. Yummy slice!

That looks yum. I'll have to put it on the list. However, just run out of cocoa, coconut, flour of all kinds and eggs so will have to put it on hold until shopping day!

Lovely Amy. Reminds me of a similar AWW recipe I used to make when I was living at home. Must find that recipe and see if its the same.

Thanks ladies ;D

Brumington, wow, you must have been baking a lot to run out of all those ingredients! I hope you enjoy this when you make it :D

Kimmy, I think it would probably be similar. With the amount of AWW cookbooks out there, they've probably repeated or very closely repeated the same recipes a couple of times! ;D

I used to make this one long ago too. It is lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Tam, my pleasure, glad to hear you enjoyed it!! :D
Do you think maybe your tray is a bit bigger than average? That could explain why it never fills right up and also why yours slices have been burning.
This slice is quite like a brownie, so the fudgier the better I reckon ;)
