Raspberry and coconut cake

A gorgeous weekend treat with the sweetness of the raspberries making every mouthful a delight. This gluten and dairy free cake can be a snack or dessert, freezes well and is especially lovely when just out of the oven. The combination of raspberry and coconut is perfect and this cake has a lovely softness to it which makes it a pleasure to eat.
