Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour, and butter; blend with a pastry blender until the mixture is in coarse crumbs. Remove 2 cups of the mixture to another bowl, and reserve the rest.
  3. Stir the coconut and walnuts into the 2 cups of the sugar mixture. Pat firmly into the greased pan. Stir the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon into the reserved mixture. Then mix in the egg, buttermilk and vanilla until well blended. Spread this over the crust in the pan.
  4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. Allow to cool. Make a glaze using confectioners' sugar and enough of the milk to give it a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars before cutting into squares.

Very good recipe and a great way to get rid of extra buttermilk! I wouldn't call these "coconut bars" though - to me, it was more of a spice cake. Mine baked in 30 minutes (even at 350 with an oven thermometer), so I'd recommend watching the baking time. I omitted the glaze and it was just fine. Thanks for the recipe!

These were wonderful and made EVEN BETTER with a layer of chocolate chips between the crust and the cake! I doubled the coconut and omitted the glaze also. Thanks!

These were awesome! I will definitely make them again. I made a few small changes - I reduced white sugar to 1 cup, omitted walnuts and used 3/4 cup coconut instead, and omitted glaze. Unless you don't like coconut I can't imagine anyone not liking this recipe!
