IMG_1197.jpgThese are a few of my favorite things.


175 g butter
175 g caster sugar
3 eggs, beaten
175 g self-raising flour
100 g coconut (divided) 75 grams for cake
150 g raspberries
1 lemon, zest and juice (divided)
1/2 c buttermilk

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 juice of lemon
Toasted coconut 25 g


Preheat oven to 350 f. Line loaf pan with baking parchment.

Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add lemon zest. Gradually add the eggs with a little of the flour and eat well.  Fold in the rest of the flour alternatively with the buttermilk and juice from 1/2 of lemon. Fold in 75g of the coconut and the raspberries.

Spoon mixture into the loaf tin and level the top.  Bake for 55-65 minutes or golden and well risen.
