3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sweetened flake coconut

- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C). Line the bottom of an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a heavy saucepan combine semisweet chocolate, sugar, butter and water. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; cool slightly. Whisk in eggs then stir in flour until smooth. Pour batter into pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. Bake for 15 minutes.
