Chocolate and Coconut Slice with Crunchy Hazelnut Swirl

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Combine the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl and melt over simmering water until smooth, cool slightly then whisk through the eggs, sugar and vanilla.

Stir in the coconut and sifted flours until well combined. Spoon into a greased and paper lined 18 x 28cm slice pan. Drop teaspoonfuls of the hazelnut spread randomly over the top of the mixture then lightly turn through with a knife to create a marble effect.

Bake in a moderate over 180°C for 40-45 minutes or until cooked and golden. Allow to cool in the pan before slicing. Store in an air tight container until required. Dust lightly with icing sugar prior to serving.
