Ddelicious Chocolate Courgette Loaf Cake

If you want to have your cake and eat your vegetables too, this Chocolate Courgette Loaf Cake is a great solution! Before you ask, no you cannot taste the courgette at all


For the cake:

65 g Self raising flour
100 g Wholemeal flour
1 tsp Baking powder
175 g Coconut sugar
1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
35 g Cocoa powder
200 g Courgette grated, one large courgette
100 g Dark chocolate chips
3 Eggs large
100 ml Vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla extract
40 g Natural yoghurt
For decoration (optional)
35 g Dark chocolate optional
Metric – US Customary


Pre-heat the oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the self raising flour, wholemeal flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa powder and coconut sugar until well combined

Grate the courgette and squeeze it over the sink to release any extra liquid, then add it to the bowl along with the dark chocolate chips, stir everything together

In another bowl or large jug, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and yoghurt

Pour the egg mixture into the bowl of flour/courgette etc and stir everything together until well combined

Pour the mixture into the loaf tin and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean (I would suggest checking it after 1 hour). Leave to cool fully

To decorate, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave. To do this, blast it for 30 seconds, stir, then blast in 10 second bursts stirring in between each one until melted. Drizzle it over the cake

Store leftovers in an airtight continer in a cool place and eat within 3 days.
