Butter Coconut Bars

Butter Coconut Bars ~ Delicious, Buttery coconut bars with a Chocolate Glaze - no eggs or milk required !

Buttery, moist sweet treats which will be liked by all, especially Coconut lovers. These Butter Coconut Bars are quick to make and require no eggs or milk.

It gives the most delicious smell whilst baking and your house would smell absolutely wonderful... which might also not be a good thing, as these bars need to cool completely and I am one who can normally not wait to cut into a great smelling dessert.

Don't ask how I know, but do not even attempt to cut out a small tasting piece before the baked cake spent at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator - it will crumble away.

After the initial chilling time, I did not return the bars to the refrigerator as they were by then nicely set and kept up well.

This is definitely all Coconut lovers' dream treat - buttery coconut with a chocolate glaze {and excellent as a treat in the kids' lunchbox!}


25 - 30 Servings


1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 cup Sugar
2 cups Flour
2 t Baking Powder
Pinch Salt
2 cups Dessicated Coconut

2 1/4 cup Icing Sugar
1 TB Cocoa
1/4 cup Boiling Water

White or 2 Tone Chocolate Chips, to top {optional}


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Cream together the Butter and Sugar until light and fluffy.
3.) Add the Flour, Baking Powder and Salt - beat on medium until smooth.
4.) Stir in the Coconut and transfer to the prepared oven dish {it is a somewhat dry mixture} - press into all corners and make equal on top - bake 20 - 25 minutes.
5.) Remove from the oven.
6.) Immediately after removing the cake from the oven - mix together the Icing Sugar, Cocoa and oiling Water - it must be a runny consistency.
7.) Pour the Icing mixture over the hot cake and leave to cool completely - sprinkle with Chocolate Chips once cooled, but not set {if using}

Place into the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to fully set before cutting into bars.
