How to make coconut and choc chip tray bake

  • Heat your oven at 160°c fan oven/180°c/Gas 4. Fully line a baking tin with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl or mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs and then the vanilla extract. Add the flour and coconut and gently fold in then add the milk to loosen the mixture, and it drops off the spoon easily. Add more milk if it doesn’t.
  • Pour the mixture into your tin and level the surface. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then remove and place on a wire rack. Leave to cool completely.
  • To make the topping, sift the icing sugar in a bowl and add 2 tsp water with a few drops of pink food colouring. Mix until smooth, and add more water until you have a spreadable icing.
  • Pour the icing into the middle, then spread out to the edges using a palette knife. Immediately sprinkle the coconut on top of the icing. Leave to set before cutting into pieces.
