chocolate and coconut cake/slice recipe please.

Just reading another thread bought back a memory of a cake I used to make. .

It was sort of between a cake and a slice . . chocolate mixture on the bottom and then a coconut mixture placed on it. . topped with the remaining chocolate mix. . and then baked.

It tasted very much like coconut ice. . and was lovely and moist.

Think it might be called Churchill Square.

From the NZ Women's Division of Federated Farmers Cookbook in 1965.

4 ounces butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flour
4 ounces sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon icing sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 cup dried shredded coconut
1Cream the butter and sugar, add egg and then the dry ingredients.
2Put half the mixture into a flat tin and spread with a hot knife.
3Mix the filling and spread over the cake mixture in the tin.
4Cover with the remaining cake mixture.
5Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes.
If that's not it, it sounds similar (thanks to the person above who gave me a name to search for)

With the original churchill slice recipe, the base was rolled out. The remaining chocolate mix was rolled out and spread with red jam and put on top of the coconut. Do this by rolling it out of greaseproof paper, so that you can transfer it to the bottom. Cook. Ice with chocolate icing sprinkled with fine coconut on top.
