Courgette Bundt Cake

The courgette season is upon us, the green beauties are popping up overnight and so the annual race to keep up has commenced. Courgettes are  a very versatile vegetable easily grown in the vegetable garden , easily incorporated into many recipes as regularly readers of my blog will know I have a love for courgette cakes, so here's another.

Picking up on the current trend for bundt cakes on the internet and twitter, please welcome the Courgette Bundt Cake.


  • 225g Grated courgette
  • 250g self raising flour
  • 3 eggs - free range
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 150ml sunflower oil
Bundt tin approx 10 inch , oiled and flour dusted

Preheat oven to 180c normal / 160c fan

  • Grate your courgettes , I used my food processor grating blade.If you don't have one, place in a large bowl after grating.
  • Now add all the other ingredients
  • Mix well until well incorporated
  • Pour into your prepared tin
  • Bake for 35 minutes approximately until it tests cooked with a skewer.
  • Leave to cool in tin for approx 15 minutes
  • Tip up onto cooling wire rack, allow to cool fully
  • Now ice or frost to your taste, I just used a simple glace icing drizzle.

I am entering this cake in Dollybakes & Laura Loves Cake  calendar cakes challenge for "British Summertime" as courgettes are for me a signal of summer and dolly just loves a bundt cake !

This looks lovely. I love the drizzled icing.
I was given a bundt tin for Christmas but haven't used it yet. Can any cake recipe be baked in one I wonder?

Great idea, courgettes make a lovely looking Bundt. I was late planting my courgettes this year & they're just coming on nicely. Looking forward to trying your recipe :-)
