Vegan Chocolate Courgette Cake

Vegan Chocolate Courgette Cake

Although not strictly a traditional Christmas cake, anything can look festive with holly on top! This is a really fudgey and rich chocolate loaf. If you have a really sweet tooth, I would add icing or drizzle chocolate on top for extra sweetness.

200 grams plain flour
200 grams caster sugar
80 grams cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Half a teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
250 ml water
150 grams raw courgette, grated

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a loaf tin.
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix all the liquid ingredients in a jug and mix well.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients, grate in the courgette and mix together to form a batter.
Pour the batter into the loaf tin and bake for 40-50 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.
Once baked, leave to cool in the tin before slicing up.
