MORE Baking!


Microwave Chocolate Fudge Slice
Can be made gluten-free...

1c plain flour (we used gluten-free flour of course)
1/2c sugar (I am going to try this with 1/4c honey next time)
1tbsp cocoa
1c coconut
125g butter
1/2tsp vanilla essence

Method:
Sift all the dry ingredients.
Add melted butter and vanilla essence, mix well.
Press into an oblong microwave baking pan, and bake on full power for 3.5 minutes**.
Cool a little.
Spread with chocolate icing***, and return to the microwave for a further 30 seconds for a fudgy effect to the icing.

** I put this into an oblong glass dish, but didn't grease it or add baking paper... very difficult to get out. I am not sure what I'd do next time; probably grease it with butter and see if that makes a difference!

Variations:
Instead of using regular icing - sprinkle chocolate balls / buttons thickly over the top and allow to melt before spreading with a knife to cover.
If you run out of coconut, you can used flaked rice for a crunchier substitute; or half in half.
Reduce the cocoa by half and add 1/2tbsp of orange drink powder for a jaffa effect.

I was given a photocopy of this recipe from a friend of mine, her's was also a photocopy... so where this has come from is anyone's guess! But it is GOOD!

Leonie - here is the link to that G-F Peppermint Slice I was telling you about; surprisingly the base is almost exactly the same as the recipe above!

*** the above highlighted link also gives you the recipe for the chocolate icing that I used on this slice.

Amy - I think you'll like this slice also! Popped over to visit hubby's sister the other day, and took some with me - her and our nieces LOVED it; my biggest compliment! You could also include peppermint essence with the chocolate icing, and turn it into an even quicker and easier peppermint slice... or would that be fatal!!!!!!?????

Hmmm - I may be tempted by this one - cheap to make, lots of variations and no oven......... ticks all the right boxes.
