Coconut Raspberry Loaf Cake

Here is a nice, flavourful loaf cake to enjoy.  It is very moist and the coconut adds nice flavour to the loaf cake and raspberry filling! I LOVE coconut so this was a nice addition to an already delicious loaf cake!

I began by adding the butter, sugar and vanilla to the bowl of my stand mixer and creaming it together.

And finally the flour, baking powder and milk, then mixing it well to combine all ingredients.

I poured almost half into my parchment paper lined loaf pan.

Spread 3/4 cup of the raspberry jam evenly over the batter.

And then the remaining batter.

I baked it at 350 degrees for an hour, covering it with tin foil during the last 15 minutes until it was nicely browned and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

I let it fully cool an then made a glaze.

I combined the icing sugar and milk and whisked until smooth.

  1. I know I’ve said this to you before but it bares repeating. Your recipes look so delicious but also so easy to make with ingredients I actually have. I see so many delicious recipes and they’re wonderful but I usually just like looking at them because I know I’ll never make them. I hate to cook so that’s no surprise and I hate even more having to hunt down ingredients I never use or will never use again. Your recipes make it into my recipe list with the chance of being made. 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing that and I’m glad to hear our recipes work for you. I like the day to day cooking almost as much as baking and it’s always fun to introduce variations of this same kind of cooking to our meals and then share with everyone through our blog! Maybe you will start to enjoy cooking some day Lol, my husband always tells me that home cooking is the best because it’s made with love….he even says it when he’s not in trouble!!
