Let’s Begin This Recipe.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Lightly grease and coat with flour a Standard 10″ x 5 3/4″ Loaf Pan. Set aside.

Then, in a medium bowl, add the all-purpose flour and baking powder. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the coconut milk, pure cane sugar, greek yogurt, unsalted butter, egg, lemon juice, lemon extract, and zest of lemon, mixing ingredients in an electric stand mixer until well combined.

Now, fold in raspberries. **NOTE: If using frozen raspberries, be sure to toss them in flour before adding to your mixture.**

Spoon batter into pan and sprinkle the crumble topping on top of batter.

To Make Crumble:

Combine all-purpose flour and pure cane sugar in a small bowl. Add cubed unsalted butter to flour-sugar mixture and using a pastry blender (or two forks), cut butter into mixture until ingredients look “pea-like”. **Continue recipe steps.**

Bake cake batter in your preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until center is baked through when toothpick or knife is inserted.

Once done, remove oven and let it cool for 20-25 minutes before removing cake from pan.

In the meantime, whisk together ingredients for lemon glaze and drizzle over cooled cake.

Slice and Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

RASPBERRIES: If using frozen raspberries, be sure to lightly toss them in 1Tbsp of flour or arrowroot starch before adding them to batter. This reduces any excess water from the raspberries.
STORAGE: Refrigerate leftover cake by tightly wrapping it in foil paper or keeping it fully covered in a cake stand—lasts up to a week. Can also be stored at room temperature for up to 2-3 days.
