  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 22x32cm cake tin.
  2. Base: In a medium bowl combine the sugar, brown sugar, flour and butter. Continue to blend 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 tin.
  4. Centre Layer: Stir the bicarb 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 tin.
  5. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven or until firm. Allow to cool.
  6. Top Glaze: Make a glaze using icing sugar and enough of the milk to give it a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bars before cutting into squares.
