Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line the base of a 21cm square tin with baking parchment. Put the cocoa, butter and sugar in your largest saucepan and gently melt, stirring so the mixture doesn’t catch. When the cocoa mixture is melted and combined, cool slightly, then stir in the eggs, little by little, followed by the flour and coconut.
  2. Tip into the tin and bake for 45 mins on a middle shelf – check after 30 mins and cover with another piece of baking parchment if the crust is browning too much. Cool in the tin, then carefully lift out and cut into squares.

Great, easy to make brownies. I prepared a batch of these for my sister to take to work for a bake sale and they were gone in no time, with several people asking her when the next sale was so they could have some more! They were a bit of a spontaneous project using ingredients that I had to hand so I had to leave out the coconut because I had none at home. I would like to try them exactly as the recipe states in the future but without the coconut they were still lovely, fuss-free gooey brownies. I did have to leave them in the oven for about an hour though

Made these yesterday. It looked like a lot of sugar so I used 425g instead of 500g you certainly didnt miss the extra sugar as they were gorgeous. I also only cooked them for 30mins which made them lovely and gooey in the middle. My husband and children loved them and they were so easy will definately make them again!

Amazing! A friend of mine tried them and said they were fantastic and asked for the recipe.... I showed it to her and she replied "But I hate coconut!" so even the biggest coconut haters can be converted by this gorgeous recipe!

I made 2 batches (one with oreos!) & both times I had to leave in the oven much longer than suggested.I kept baking paper covering them but they're still very crispy on the outside.I don't know where I've gone wrong.They look awful as I couldn't cut them properly so now I have a load of mishapen brownies.They taste good though!

Taste good,look terrible!

Very good, easy to make, taste great even when they've been stored in the freezer.

Relieved that it wasn't just me who thought that the whole mixture was meant to melt - like Vaiva (above) I nearly abandoned the mixture as after 20 minutes I was still waiting for the cocoa, butter and sugar to melt completely. I was convinced it was going to be a disaster but far from it. Delicious.
