How to make Chocolate Courgette Bread

To check if the baking powder is still fresh you can add ¼ teaspoon of powder to 1 tablespoon hot water. If it bubbles – the powder is good. The recipe is dairy free and high in fiber and nutrients.

What you'll need:

  • 1 egg
  • 225 g courgette
  • 60 g sugar
  • 125 ml vegetable oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
