Courgette Loaf Cake

A fantastic recipe for using up a glut of home-grown courgettes, this Courgette Loaf Cake is so simple and absolutely delicious. Baking with courgettes creates incredibly flavoursome and moist cakes, whilst the walnuts and raisins add a brilliant extra dimension to this simple loaf cake. We like serving this a little like a tea loaf; sliced and slathered in butter! Make sure to share this recipe with your fellow courgette growers, we know it will go down a treat.
