Coconut Filled and Frosted Brownies

Coconut Filled & Frosted Brownies 1.jpg text


This recipe is a first for me on a number of levels. One, it’s my ever frosted brownie, how can that be!! I love brownies and believe my signature brownie recipe ticks all of the vital brownie must haves. It’s dense, rich, intensely fudgy and packed full of chocolate. Coconut Filled & Frosted Brownies 2

The other first for me is that I’m guest posting over at Jolena’s blog The Ruby Kitchen. When Jolena asked me to help her out by creating a sweet treat to post on her wonderful blog how could I say no. If you’ve never visited The Ruby Kitchen before then your missing out!

I’ve never been what you’d called a coconut fan, but over the recent months I’ve began warming to it a little more. Also I’d been wanting to bake some more brownies but this time instead of just stuffing the insides of them I also wanted to have some kind of topping. Coconut Filled & Frosted Brownies 4

I’m trying to use up my stash of sweets and candy bars that I’ve stashed away in my baking box, so when I spied two multi packs of Bounty’s the idea of coconut brownies came to mind. I didn’t want to stop just at Bounty filled brownies, I wanted to create a coconut icing for them too. I didn’t want a sweet icing, as the brownies themselves are pretty rich.

Swiss meringue buttercream is perfect for such needs, it’s not sweet but it is lusciously light and creamy and a dream to devour. These brownies are packed full of tropical coconut flavour thanks to one of my favourite baking extracts. The smell alone of LorAnn Coconut Baking Emulsion is enough to convert you to love coconut, it smells heavenly. You only need a little though as it’s quite strong, but it’s subtle at the same time so you don’t end up with a nasty chemical taste. I used a dash of it both in the brownie batter and the swiss meringue, you can smell its glorious scent wafting from the brownies make your mouth water instantly. Coconut Filled & Frosted Brownies 6

Also in the coconut swiss meringue buttercream is a tablespoon of desiccated coconut. This adds a lovely little chewiness as well as enhancing the coconut. I simply piped it onto the brownies, but you can spread it on. If you’ve never worked with swiss meringue then you’re in for a treat, it’s so smooth and makes spreading and piping a breeze.

From the coconut enthusiast to the die-hard coconut fan these brownies have got your name on them. Coconut Filled & Frosted Brownies 8
