Weekend Baking | Raspberry & Coconut Loaf Cake


I haven't uploaded a weekend baking post in absolutely ages and since I've been having withdrawal symptoms, I thought that I would share one today. I've definitely been baking less with all the hot weather that England's been having but I thought that the addition of coconut to the cake gave it a lovely summer feel!
 As usual, this cake is refined sugar-free (but doesn't taste it) however, if that's not your thing, you can replace the jam for shop bought and add in caster sugar instead of the maple syrup. Read on for some more pictures and to check out how to make it...



You Will Need
For The Cake
250g of Self Raising Flour
150g of Unsalted Butter
50g of Desiccated Coconut
2 tbsps of Maple Syrup
3 Eggs
For The Jam & Decoration
150g of Fresh Raspberries
2tbsps of Honey
50g of Desiccated Coconut

To Make
1) Make the jam by putting 100g of the raspberries in a saucepan, cover with cold water and add the honey. Simmer until it reaches a jam-like consistency
2) For the cake, mix together the flour, butter, coconut, syrup and eggs in a large bowl
3) Spoon the cake mixture into a loaf tin and pour half the jam on the top, using a skewer to marble it into the batter
4) Bake at 180° for an hour
5) Once the cake is cool, decorate with the remaining jam, raspberries and desiccated coconut


What do you like to bake in the summer?
