Courgette cake

Courgettes! In a cake!  Trust me, it is delish! 

Preheat oven to 160c.  Line a 2lb loaf tin.

Whisk together 2 eggs, 125 ml vegetable oil and 85g soft brown sugar.  Add 350g grated courgette.

In another bowl, mix 300g plain flour, 2tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda and 1/2 tsp baking powder.

Then add 140g sultanas and 85g chopped walnuts (I've also used chopped almonds).

Add dry ingredients to wet, mix, then put in loaf tin. 

Bake for about an hour. 

Delicious warm, or cold with butter.  Or without. And with a cup of tea.
