Summer comes in all flavors, but the combination of raspberries and coconut is absolutely outstanding!
Here’s a recipe for a Raspberry Coconut Bread that you will definitely love. It would be a great breakfast treat, a sweet afternoon snack and a surprise for dinner dessert. Bring the taste of summer into your home.
Ingredients For The Bread:
- 1-1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

- 1 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes

- Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until combined.
- Gently stir in the coconut and raspberries.

I love to change recipes . . . you can have flavored milk of the almond or coconut variety for this recipe. You can add some other berries or substitute them in this recipe. I do like the idea of a loaf rather than a round cake, but if that fits with the look you’re going for, use whatever baking pan you prefer.
I’m sure this recipe will be good all year round with frozen fruit.
