Drizzle with raspberry glaze, top with fruit and you've got a gorgeous tea party treat.

The creaminess and gentle acidity of unsweetened coconut yoghurt make it a beautiful ingredient in baking.

This cake is best made in a bundt tin so it bakes through properly. Serve it warm, with extra coconut yoghurt!

180g butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla extract 
2 organic eggs
150g spelt flour (or plain flour)
50g ground almonds 
50g desiccated coconut 
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
170ml coconut yoghurt 
1 large (or 2 small) ripe pears, skin left on, cored and cut into segments

150g fresh or frozen raspberries
140g apricot jam 
100ml water 

To decorate
fresh strawberries or raspberries
toasted coconut flakes

Gradually add flour, ground almonds, coconut, baking powder, baking soda and coconut yoghurt. Be careful not to over mix. Pour into cake tin and dot with pear segments and raspberries.

Bake 35-40 minutes, or until golden, springy to the touch and a skewer inserted comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out on a rack.

Meanwhile, make the glaze, place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to boil. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring continuously. 

Take off heat and drizzle onto the cake while it is still warm. Let it drip down the sides if you like! Decorate with fresh berries and toasted coconut flakes.
