Raspberry and Coconut Upside Down Loaf Cake

This is my very own creation, made for the first time yesterday and when both myself and Himself took our first bites, we were unanimous that this was a recipe to be shared.

Starting with my failsafe vanilla sponge recipe, cream the butter first, then add in the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

Next add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Finally add the flour, coconut, vanilla, milk and combine.

Taking 3/4’s of your raspberries, crush them up and lie them on the base of your VERY well greased loaf tin

Add half your cake mix and then add the final 1/4 of your raspberries on top

Finish off with your second half of cake batter and decorate as you wish (don’t get too fancy, remember, this will end up being the base!)

Pop it into the oven for 45mins – 1 hour, I started checking it at 45mins. Once a cake skewer comes out clean, it’s ready.

Take it out of the oven and turn out straight away. As this is a beautifully soft and lusciously moist cake, handle it with a little extra care as it can bend quite easily.

Don’t be afraid of the little black bits, that’s caramelised jam and truly scrumptious!

To finish, dust generously with icing sugar
