Rustic banana, blueberry and coconut cake recipe

This yummy cake recipe was created using ingredients found lying around the pantry and freezer. It really is that easy to make a scrumptious and decadent cake that you and your family will love. Dig in!



  • 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • 1 cup white spelt flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup rapadura sugar
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 3 bananas (mashed)
  • 125 g butter (melted)
  • 2 tbs natural yoghurt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries


Preheat oven to 175C (155C fan-forced). Grease a cake tin and line with baking paper.

In one bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together. In another bowl, beat all the wet ingredients together. Make sure to leave your blueberries until the end.

Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined, then add the blueberries and gently stir through.

Pour the mixture into your cake tin and pop into the oven for 40-50 minutes, or until skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto cake rack. Serve and enjoy!


  • If you don't want to use wholemeal spelt flour, you can use 2 cups of white flour instead (or vice versa).
  • Enjoy a piece of warm cake with some whipped cream or a bit of butter - yum!
