Category Uncategorised

We have a fabulous recipe this week - Courgette Loaf! We needed as many courgette recipes as possible to use up everything grown in the allotment and this was a winner - described by some as “nicer than carrot cake!” It’s also very easy to make.

- 70 mls sunflower oil (or similar) - 5p

- 90 gms caster sugar - 15p

- 90 gms of courgette (grated) - 50p

- 1/2 tsp baking powder - 5p

- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda- 5p

- pinch ground cinnamon - 2p

- 45 gms dried fruit - 25p

How to make:

1. Pre heat oven to 180C.

2. Line a 1lb loaf tin.

3. Measure all the the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well to make a thick batter.
