Coconut & Raspberry Loaf – Dairy Free

I’ve had this recipe in my virtual back pocket for a while now just waiting for the right time to make it. Everything about it just smacks of nostalgia, tea time, quaint vintage vibes and I didn’t want it to go to waste.

So when I joined a new group of lovely crochet loving ladies, I knew immediately what to bring along and it was perfect! The recipe yields a 2lb loaf size and it’s quite dense hence the loaf in the title and not cake. It calls for frozen raspberries which I always have in the freezer and I think the next one will be made using the bag of frozen mixed berries I have. It needs nothing more than a light dusting of icing sugar and that’s really only for a bit of extra flourish and why not!
