Fudgy Coconut Brownies

Waste not, want not! Leftover coconut in
a storage jar!
I very rarely bake, due to not being overly good at it but today I had the baking urge and decided to make some brownies. It's a recipe that Dave and I whipped together once, and was really good, so I thought I'd go for it! I'm very pleased to say that I have been successful in my brownie making and have some to share the recipe with you all!

The recipe only calls for a few ingredients; cocoa, butter, golden caster sugar, eggs, self raising flour, and desiccated coconut (plus some icing sugar for dusting, if you fancy it) so it's really easy to throw together! I had most of the ingredients in the house anyway, and just had to get some golden caster sugar and coconut. Here are my fabulous results!

Cue "artsy food pic"
I'm seriously proud of myself! The only bit I would change, would be a little less cooking so that the edges don't go so hard...but I have never been a fan of the "edge of the brownie"...it's all personal preference! I am also pleased with the crispy top to them too. The texture is absolutely perfect - they are all really gooey and the coconut flavour is fab. Hooray! Extremely happy, and glad that I took the time to give it a go.

While those were cooling off, I threw together some chilli con carne, which will be dinner for tomorrow night and will just need reheating. And later on I am going to be making a creamy masala, so all in all it will have been a successful cooking day.

If anyone wants to give the Fudgy Coconut Brownies recipe a go, you can find it on Good Food's website here. Enjoy!
