Raspberry Coconut Loaf Cake

Raspberry Coconut Loaf Cake

I’ve been a fan of raspberry coconut cake since forever! As a kid I loved to visit our local bakery in Peshawar called “Cake Palace” to get jelly roll (that’s what we used to call it back then). When I moved to the UK, I was delighted to find M&S’s coconut and raspberry loaf. Sadly though, like most other superstore desserts, it has high sugar / calories which is not a healthy food choice especially on a regular basis. So I created a healthier version of this iconic cake with oat flour, coconut flour and protein powder—and the result is absolutely delicious! A 106g slice of this cake has only 148 calories (Protein: 9g, Carb: 13g, Fat: 7g), a massive improvement over its superstore counterpart with 435 calories (Protein: 5g, Carb: 54g, Fat: 22g). This cake is going to be my afternoon tea staple!
