How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 150°C. Brush a 7cm-deep, 10 x 20cm (base measurement) loaf pan with melted butter. Line the base and sides with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Sift the combined flour into a large bowl. Add the sugar, coconut and cinnamon. Make a well in the centre. Add the eggs, banana, oil and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Gently fold in the raspberries. Pour into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean. Set aside in pan for 20 minutes to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. To make the fig butter, use an electric beater to beat the butter and icing sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the jam and beat until smooth.
  4. Cut banana bread into slices and serve with fig butter.
