Fruity courgette cake


Lightly spiced and fruity, this cake is delicious and another great way of using up this years courgette glut. I’m sure it still counts toward my 5-a-day, right?


  • 4 tablespoons of aqua-faba
  • 20ml olive oil
  • 350g courgette (coarsely grated)
  • 70ml Ginger wine (or white wine)
  • 85g soft brown sugar
  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 85g walnuts
  • 140g sultanas



In a large bowl mix the aqua-faba, olive oil, courgettes and wine.

In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients thoroughly.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

Pour the mixture into a greased and lined loaf tin.

Cook in the centre of a pre-heated oven for about an hour at 160 degrees Celsius until lightly browned on top and springy to the touch.

Leave to cool before slicing.
