Courgette Loaf + Raw Nuts

I decided that I wanted to make a courgette cake, I have very fond memories of it from a co-worker and desired to re-create it at home.

I found a recipe online, simply typed in healthy courgette cake and it came up with dozens.

Ingredients:

  • Butter for the tin
  • 2 large egg
  • 125ml vegetable oil
  • 85g soft brown sugar
  • 350g courgette, coarsely grated
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 140g sultana

Method:

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, oil and sugar, then add the courgettes and vanilla.

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

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, or freeze for up to 1 month.

It’s gorgeous, I would highly recommend eating it fresh and warm from the oven with a cuppa.

I also made two recipes from my Naturally Sassy book. This is a great book for raw, healthier, cooking and baking. Highly recommend buying it.

Peanut Coco Balls:

Haven’t tried these yet but will update when we do!

I also gave a second whirl at the peanut butter cups. They we’re much prettier and successful the second time as the ingredients didn’t scare me as much!
