Coconut walnut slice.

Coconut Walnut Slice is what I’m baking now and I’m writing this post for tomorrow. I need some baked food to share with friends this Sunday. So I thought I better bake early as I can foresee a very busy Saturday. I’ve just got home when my daughter called asking me to go and pick her. Looking at the clock, I only have about 1 hour. Can I bake something? Not wanting to do too much washing, I thought a melt and mix would be great. I love coconut so it has to be in. Found a packet of walnuts in my fridge and that would do the trick.

I needed 2 pots to be quick. I turned on the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and then here follows my recipe:.

Ingredients A
250g butter
2C flour
2C desiccated coconut
2t baking powder
1C sugar

Melted butter

Melted butter

Cut the butter into one pot and put on low fire to melt. Give a stir every now and then.

Butter and flour mixture for base

In another pot, add the flour, coconut and sugar. Sieve in the baking powder and give a few quick stir. Pour in the melted butter to the flour mixture and mix well. Line a lamington (shallow) tin with baking paper. Pour in the mixture and press it even. Use a rolling pin to do that…easier and faster. By that time, the oven is also ready. Put to bake for about 15 minutes. While baking, prepare Ingredients B below.

Ingredients B
5 eggs, beaten lightly
1t vanilla essence
2C desiccated coconut
1C light brown sugar
1/2 C dark brown sugar
1C chopped walnuts

Mixture of Ingredients B for topping

Mixture of Ingredients B for topping

Mix everything together in the same pot above (you don’t need to wash it). When the base above is ready, pour this mixture onto it, level it and put it back to bake for about another 20 minutes. You should be able to get this mixture done within 15 minutes, and even wash up everything if you are fast. Heaved a sigh of relief, I sat down to type this while waiting for the slice to be fully baked. Mmmmm….the smell is really so good as I sit and type away….this post for tomorrow and the slice for Sunday. It’s almost done and my post is almost done too. I will download the photos later.

What did I learn today? I can bake and write my post at the same time. That saves a lot of time. I have become smarter and more efficient. A BIG pat on my own back! Alright, I have taken out the slice and can’t wait to try it. I still have sometime to try it out before going to pick my daughter. Gosh…it’s too hot to try. I won’t want to get sore throat.

1 hour later…..

I’m back from fetching my girl. The slice has cooled down….mmmm…it’s really delicious. My children liked it. My youngest daughter hates nuts in desserts but surprisingly she said she liked it in this slice. That makes me happy. I can sneak more nuts into my desserts next time.

Do you ever have to rush to bake or something? What is your quickest bake? Please share, add and comment in the comment box below.

Just looking at that gives me a sore throat already lol!*kidding* Lovely, incidentally just bought a packet of dessicated coconut. Should wait till my sore throat gets better before I embarked on this project huh?

Mary  on December 12th, 2009

@Sarah - Thanks. I just you can call it flapjacks too.

@Jeannie - Oh dear….sore throat at this time. So sorry to hear that. Hope you recover soon so that you can enjoy all the wonderful food during this festive season.

Mary  on December 12th, 2009

@Drick - I’m sure pecan would taste great. I love pecans. I have to try that next time. So far I have only used it in pecan pies.

@Anncoo - Of course you can….you have to come here :P Looks like our weekends are very busy but still we can cook and bake. Need a good pat on our back for that. Ooooh…I love cheesecake and ice cream. I suppose I hv to fly over to your side to enjoy that….LOL

@Angie - Thanks you. I love the beautiful flavour of coconut and the crunch from the walnuts.

@Sanjana - I can give you all but you need to come here for it :D I’m having it with a cup of hot coffee now. At least it cheers me up in this terribly cold day.

Light Delight with TouTou  on December 12th, 2009

I like your cookie style - very generous in ingredients!! walnuts is one of my favorite nuts , and they taste always sooo good in muffins and bread :-D

Amber @ Native Food and Wine  on December 12th, 2009

Sounds like a great combo Mary!

penny aka jeroxie  on December 12th, 2009

I just like anything to do with coconut. I may try using macadamian nuts…. heh

Mary  on December 13th, 2009

@Impromptu Diva - Wow…that’s a lot of baking this weekend :) This one is easy but the pineapple tarts is a little more challenging. I’m sure you are going to have fun baking and eating:)

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - Thank you. I haven’t tried walnuts in muffins and bread yet. Actualy haven’t really made muffins and bread. I have to catch up on my baking.

@Amber - Thank you. Yes, it is a great combo. I will make it again.

@Penny - Ooooh …I love macadamia nuts. I would like to try that next time too. Thanks for suggestion.

Cheah  on December 14th, 2009

Great slice and notice that your pics are brighter. Do you have difficulty cutting up the slice? You cut them when they’re completely cooled?

Mary  on December 14th, 2009

@Cheah - Thanks. Well, still the same camera and dark environment. It’s gloomy the whole day. The flash helps. Cutting the slice is quite a test of my muscles…LOL. Yes, I cut it when it’s cold but it was hard. Glad my friends all liked it.

kristy  on December 14th, 2009

Ooo… yum yum yum… this definitely smell fantastic! Love the coconut flavour especially when having it hot.

Mary  on December 14th, 2009

@Kristy - Yes, I know you can get it immediately :) We were all born in a land of abundant coconuts :D
