posted in: Recipes | 1


200g golden caster sugar

4 eggs, at room temperature

220ml coconut oil, melted

1tsp vanilla essence

220g grated courgette (with the skin on)

200g Doves Farm Gluten Free White Self-Raising Flour Blend

75g Innovative Solutions White Teff Flour

75g sorghum flour

1tsp xanthan gum

2tsp gluten free baking powder

1tsp ground cinnamon

50g pecan nuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.  Line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.


Break the eggs into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, oil and vanilla essence and whisk until a bit foamy.

Add the grated courgettes and stir.  Sift the three flours into the bowl and then add the xanthan gum and cinnamon.

Stir well, then fold in the nuts.

Pour the mixture into the loaf tin, lightly smoothing the surface.  Cover lightly with a piece of baking parchment.

Bake in oven for approx 50 minutes, then remove the top piece of parchment.  Continue baking for another 10 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool fully.
