Raspberry & Coconut Tray Bake / The Bake-Off Bake-Over Week 2

It's week 2 of the healthy Bake-Off Bake-Over! This week on The Great British Bake Off was cake week with the first task being to create a delicious tray bake, which is what I have decided to make for my healthy recreation! I've opted for this sweet Raspberry & Coconut Tray Bake with a vanilla/coconut sponge topped with juicy fresh raspberries and extra sprinkle of coconut. The flavour combination is a dream!

This tray-bake is heavenly, the spongy texture is spot on and it's perfectly sweet. Of course the recipe is all gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free as all my Bake-Off Bake-Over recipes will prove no-one has to miss out an anything, even if you're following a plant-based diet OR have an allergies.

Next week is Bread Week on GBBO so be sure to check in next Sunday for my free-from bread creation! I can't wait!
