wOnKo's Slice of Heaven



    1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Grease, line (with silicon paper) then flour a slice tin (9x13 inch)

    2. Using a wooden spoon, beat margarine, sugar until combined, add eggs and combine, add coconut and combine well, add vanilla and mix until smooth. Sift in flour, salt and soda, throw in all (except for the reserved) chocolate and nuts and mix to combine. It will be sticky but should end up fairly firm.

    3. Schloop the mixture into the prepared tray, level out the top and sprinkle on the reserved pecans and chocolate, pressing it slightly into the top.

      Bake for 45 minutes, rotating the tin 180 degrees once to prevent burning on one side, until the top is golden and the centre is set (timing will depend on the oven)

    4. Place tin on wire rack and wait until it is just warm. Ease out of tin and slice into munchable-sized bits. When cool, store (if it will last) in an airtight tin.

This slice is great with tea/coffee and is guaranteed to contain no calories unless you actually eat it


microwave NOT Suitable for microwaving - will go yukky, will refuse to brown, and will end up an un-palatible stodgy mess if you zap it. Let it cool completely before you eat it - it's texture improves as it cools off.
family NOT Kid Friendly - this slice is much too nice to waste on the munchkins (they wont appreciate it anyway) - lie to them, say it burned and you had to throw it all out - they won't buy this story but it gets you off the hook psychologically when you end up eating it all yourself.
