1 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine-grained kosher salt
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup grated, sweetened coconut, chopped finer
Fresh strawberries, raspberries, and prepared whipped cream
--(If you wish to macerate* your berries, see Tip below)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt the butter in microwave; add to large bowl, along with remaining ingredients in the order listed.
Line a 9x13 baking dish with foil and spray with oil (leave overhanging edges to form handles for removing after baking). Add the batter to the prepared baking dish, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely. Remove foil, cut into squares, and serve as shown in the photograph above. - Enjoy!
Tip: To macerate* 2 cups of berries, de-stem and rinse, then gently dry with paper towels. Place in medium bowl with 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon lemon juice; gently toss, and let berries sit at room temperature to macerate for 30 minutes.
