Courgette loaf cake

Courgette loaf cake

My version of a recipe adapted from BBC Good Food. It’s absolutely delicious.



350g courgettes, coarsely grated

2 eggs

85g soft brown sugar

85g chopped walnuts

140g sultanas, roughly chopped

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

½ tsp baking powder

Butter for the tin

125ml vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

300g plain flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground nutmeg


Heat oven to 180C/160C fan

Butter and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment

Whisk together the eggs oil and sugar then add the courgettes and vanilla extract

Combine the remaining ingredients with a pinch of salt in a separate bowl

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and then pour into the loaf tin

Bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean

Leave to cool

Serve or freeze for up to 1 month
