  • 200-225 g (7-8 oz) courgette (zucchini)
  • 225 g (8 oz) plain flour
  • 200 g (7 oz) sugar
  • 125 ml (4 fl oz) oil or melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
Optional ingredients
  • 50 g (2 oz) chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 50 g (2 oz) raisins (optional)
  1. Beat together the eggs, sugar and oil until smooth (about 2 minutes)
  2. Add in the vanilla essence. Sift in the flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Mix well. The mixture will be quite stiff at this stage.
  3. Coarsely grate the courgette and add it to the mixture (along with any optional ingredients). Mix well.
  4. Pour into a loaf tin and bake at 170°C for about an hour. Check with a skewer to see if it is cooked.
  5. Leave to cool in the loaf tin for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool.
