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.

Look and smell lovely. Haven't tasted them yet as they are for a coffee morning tomorrow! It would have been useful to know how set or otherwise the centre should be. I felt mine weren't cooked through and gave them another 15 minutes. Maybe they were meant to be like that?

My husband loves chocolate and coconut, so these are the perfect indulgent treat. I only use half the sugar and they're still super yum. To make it obvious that they've got coconut in them, I cover the top with a chocolate ganache made with 50ml double cream and 50g dark choc then sprinkle on some more dessicated coconut before cutting them into squares.

The brownies lovers in our house really liked these. The cooking time was perfect in my fan oven. Not really any taste from the coconut but it added very good texture.

I've made these brownies twice now and they are delicious... and everyone else that's tasted them seems to want more than one, too!!!! I've got a fan oven and 45 mins seems to be perfect and I don't need to cover them either. Wasn't too sure to start about the amount of coconut but, the texture and taste are amazing. Quite possibly the best brownie recipe I've ever tasted!!!

I had to leave this in the over for longer than instructed for the centre to solidify fully, but this may just be down to the amount of Malibu I added, or my rather poor oven.

Yum Yum!! I've made these a few times now and they are loved by everyone. The taste and texture is scrummy...hard to stick to one!

Made these for my partner to bring into work and they went down very well in his office - so much so that there were none left for me :( so I will be making some again soon! They are very rich and fudgy, absolutely gorgeous, and so easy to make, plus they are much cheaper to make than normal brownies as you don't have to buy lots of chocolate! Top marks for this recipe :)

I made this after seeing it on here, took it into work and everyone enjoyed it. Lovely chocolate flavour and hint of coconut (just right, not too sickly). It could be addictive!!! It is the nicest brownie I have ever tasted. The recipe is SO EASY!! Send me more of these easy tasting recipes.

The coconut flavour is minimal but you really get the texture. I would definitely cover the top next time - it didn't burn but was very crisp, which in itself wasn't a problem but meant that it carcked when cutting so didn't look beautiful! I also froze them very successfully. Mmmmm...

Fabulous, easy recipe. Making more today! I have a fan oven and cook them 5 mins less to get nice gooey centre.

tasted really indulgent, but so easy to make. The coconut added both flavour and texture. Gorgeous.

Very yum - not sure the coconut adds anything. They were lovely and dense and full flavoured.
