Coconut Raisin Loaf


We rifled through the cupboard and fridge, and pulled out a box of organic cocoa powder, sweetened coconut flakes, raisins, Bisquick, eggs, confectioners sugar and milk. After a quick review of online recipes, none of which worked perfectly, I concocted the following recipe.

Ingredients:Two and a half cups Bisquick
Three teaspoons baking powder
Eight tablespoons cocoa
Four eggs
Half cup butter
Half cup sugar
Quarter cup milk
Half cup raisins
One cup sweetened coconut
  • Soften the butter. Beat the eggs till they are fluffy
  • Sieve the Bisquick, cocoa and baking powder together into a large bowl
  • Mix in the coconut flakes and raisings into the dry ingredients
  • Fold in the butter, and then the eggs. Whisk the mixture gently and ensure there are no lumps (other than the raisins and coconut, of course!)
  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees
  • Generously butter a baking dish, pour in batter and pop it into to the oven for 30 minutes

The kids had a great time whisking the eggs, measuring out the ingredients, and generally doing pretty much everything except putting the dish into the oven and taking it out. Try it – this was fun and delicious!
