Equipment

  • 8 ½ x 4 ½ loaf pan

Ingredients

  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) rapeseed or vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 230 g (1 ½ cups) courgette/zucchini coarsely grated
  • 130 g (¾ cup) soft light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 200 g (1 ½ cups) wholemeal spelt flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon use more or less according to preference
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 120 g (¾ cup) dark chocolate chips plus extra for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F (fan). Line a 900g/2lb loaf pan with greaseproof paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oil, eggs, grated courgette/zucchini, sugar and vanilla extract until well combined.
    80 ml (⅓ cup) rapeseed or vegetable oil, 2 large eggs, 230 g (1 ½ cups) courgette/zucchini, 130 g (¾ cup) soft light brown sugar, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Gently stir in the spelt flour, cinnamon baking powder, bicarb and salt until just combined.
    200 g (1 ½ cups) wholemeal spelt flour, ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda, ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips. 
    120 g (¾ cup) dark chocolate chips
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips over the top. 
  • Bake for about 50 minutes until risen and golden and an inserted skewer comes out clean. I tend to turn the pan around after about 35 minutes to ensure it bakes evenly. 
  • Leave to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before slicing.
