Pear, Raspberry and Coconut Loaf

I figured this week it was time to start baking with some of the lovely (yet cheaper) fruit available and I have never cooked with pears before so this Pear, Raspberry and Coconut Load was a perfect choice. I just had a slice fresh out of the oven with butter and it is absolutely gorgeous :) plus it has no butter in it so it's nice and low fat too!

All you need is:

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
270g light coconut milk
vanilla essence
1 cup frozen raspberries
2 pears, peeled, cored and diced.

Pre-heat oven to 180C (fan forced) and grease and line a loaf tin.

Combine the flour, coconut and caster sugar in a bowl.

Add the eggs, coconut milk and vanilla and stir well.

Stir in the raspberries and pear, but don't over stir.

Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf tin and bake for around an hour or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Equally good served warm with butter or as a treat in the lunch boxes!
