Blueberry Coconut loaf

For the final Class before I have several weeks off for the birth and new mum role, i made this which was decided on by the contents of my cupboards.  It didn’t rise that well and I overmixed the blueberries so the whole sponge had a blue tinge to it!  For a low sugar, no egg or butter loaf recipe it was rather good.


200g self rising flour

150g sugar (i used granulated)

4tbs Greek yogurt

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

3 tbs oil ( I used rapeseed oil)

1/2 a lemon-use the juice and rind

1/2 banana mashed

100g blueberries (i used defrosted one)

1 tbs jam of your choice 
2-3 tbs desiccated coconut


  1. Mix the sugar and oil together
  2. Add the flour and bicarb
  3. Beat in the banana
  4. Add the yogurt (may need a bit more than stated to create a wet, thick batter)
  5. Add the lemon juice and rind
  6. Finally stir in the blueberries and pour into a greased and lined loaf tin
  7. Oven at 160 degrees for 25 mins
  8. Take from oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before turning out to cool
  9. Once cool brush melted jam onto the top and sides and roll cake in desiccated coconut
