60 prep time

I add some leftover raspberries in the fridge and started to have a think about what I could make with them. What goes better than raspberries and chocolate, I didn’t have the time to make an elaborate frosted gateaux so I put together this simple loaf cake.





  1. Preheat the oven to 160 oC
  2. Grease and line a 2lb loaf tin
  3. Cream together the dairy free spread and caster sugar
  4. Beat in the egg
  5. Stir in the mashed banana, cocoa powder, ground almonds, flour, xanthan gum and milk
  6. Gently stir in the raspberries and the chocolate chips
  7. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for one hour
  8. Remove from the cake tin and allow to cool before slicing
