A Delectable Slice of Courgette Cake

I know, Courgette Cake: You're probably like ewww Courgette.. in a cake?
However, this is surprisingly very nice. You can't taste the courgette what so ever so in other words it is like a healthier, easy and more interesting alternative to a plain sponge.


Ingredients:



  • Butter for the Tin
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 125ml Vegetable Oil
  • 85g Soft Brown Sugar
  • 350g Peeled Courgettes, grated
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 300g Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Nutmeg
  • 85g Walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 140g Sultanas (or raisins)
Method:


1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter and line a  loaf tin with baking parchment. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, oil and sugar, then add the courgettes and vanilla extract.

2. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients with a pinch of salt.

3. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, then pour into the tin. Bake for 1 hr, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool, then serve.

You can serve this dry or you can spread some butter on your slice ( I preferably like mine alone)

And vwala, there is your very own Courgette Cake, overall this took me about 15 mins prep time and 1 hour to cook so its perfect for a last minute treat.

If you re-create this, remember to leave a comment below and give me a link to find the picture/post but please give credit for the recipe!
