    Bake for 1 1/4 hours, until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes in pan before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and toast, if desired. Serve with butter.


You can use the same amount of ingredients to make 24 mini muffins. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease two 12-hole mini muffin pans. You will only need about 1/2 cup of raspberries, and instead of folding them through, place one on top of each muffin. Bake for 15 minutes, until springy to touch. Make this loaf the day before and keep it in plastic wrap once cooled.
