chocolate brownie mix(ContainsGlutenMay be present Tree Nuts, Milk, Peanuts, Sesame, Soy)
Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a saucepan. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl. Add the chocolate brownie mix, melted butter and a pinch of salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Transfer the brownie mixture into the baking tin and spread with the back of a wooden spoon. Sprinkle with the shredded coconut. Bake the brownie for 25-28 minutes or until just firm to the touch but still a little soft in the middle. Allow to cool completely in the baking tin. TIP: To check if the brownies are done, stick a toothpick or skewer in the centre. It should come out with crumbs clinging. If you like your brownies more cakey and less fudgey, bake for an extra 5 minutes.
While the brownies are baking, roughly chop the strawberries. In a medium saucepan, add the strawberries, sugar and water and heat over a medium heat. Cook, stirring to break up the strawberries, until slightly reduced, 5-8 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. Place the thickened cream into a large bowl or jug and whisk with electric beaters until soft peaks form and almost doubled in size, 3-4 minutes. TIP: For the perfect soft peaks, whip until the cream just clings to the whisk or beater when lifted.
Once the brownies have cooled, slice into 9 squares. Serve the brownies with the strawberry compote and whipped cream. TIP: Store any leftover brownies and strawberries in separate airtight containers!
