Courgette and Ginger Cake

I had a staff book group just before half term and I made a courgette and ginger cake for something to nibble on. It went down really well and there wasn't a slice left by the end of the session! It was really tasty, you could add more ginger if you wanted to make it more gingery.

Courgette and Ginger Cake (from Old Fashioned Zucchini and Squash Recipes)

245g self-rising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
113g butter, softened
113g caster sugar
200g brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 courgette, grated and drained
150g raisins
100g walnuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 180C.

In a bowl cream the butter and sugars together. Beat in the egg and stir in the grated courgette. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into the wet ingredients. Add the raisins and nuts and stir to combine.

Pour the batter into a 1lb loaf tin and bake for 50-60 mins until golden on top.
