Donna Hay mini raspberry & coconut crumble loaf cakes

Oooh, how cute are these little cakes?! I love mini individual cakes and these little loaf cakes are a nice change from cupcakes – and they are a smidge more sophisticated, too..

These mini raspberry and coconut crumble loaf cakes super easy to make using store cupboards so you can whip these up in no time at all. Because it is a Donna Hay recipe it is all simple technique with great results.

Ensure you spray your mini loaf pans thoroughly with non-stick spray and all will be well with the baking gods.

Thinking of having a picnic? Take along these mini loaf cakes and watch everyone fall over themselves to grab one!


100 grams melted butter, at room temperature

1/3 cup caster sugar

1 cup plain flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ cup desiccated coconut

¼ cup milk

½ cup raspberry jam

coconut crumble:

1 eggwhite

2 tablespoons caster sugar

1 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 180C and grease 6, ¾ cup capacity mini loaf pans.

In a small bowl combine eggwhite, caster sugar and flaked coconut – set aside.

In a mixing bowl stir together butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, coconut and milk.

Spoon into the tins and bake for 10-14 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

Set aside to cool but leave oven on.

When cool spread 1 tablespoon of jam over each cake and press on some of the topping.

Bake for another 5 minutes, then cool in tin before serving.

    I love both raspberries and coconut, I imagine they’d be delicious paired together…

    I love raspberry and coconut together-even with some white chocolate too! 😀

    Beautiful photos and what a lovely combination! I agree that white chocolate would take these over the top. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for the kind words! I should make these again, I have a glut of strawberries at the moment – so cheap in Sydney!

        Definitely make them again! They are making me drool 🙂 I’m sure friends and family love them too!

    Hehe, when I first saw the thumbnail for these I didn’t know if they were sweet or savoury (pizza squares or the like). I’m pretty pleased they turned out to be sweet! 😀

      Sometimes it is hard to see from those tiny pictures what the food is meant to be!

    These look lovely, I always love mini-individual sized desserts…for some reason makes me feel less guilty and more lady-like 🙂

      I agree! Mini means you can eat more 🙂

    I’m obsessed with my mini loaf tins too. They’re so much more interesting than regular muffin tins. Your raspberry and coconut cakes look fab.

    • thehungrymum August 10, 2015 at 2:51 am #

      Thanks so much! My little loaf tin often gets neglected but I do love using it.

    The only thing I like better than cake, is cake that is easy to make! These look delicious.

      Easy to bake cakes is my thing! Simple and delish – that’s how baking should be 😉
