Makes: 1 loaf (10 slices)
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing

3 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs, beaten
Finely grate zest and juice of 1 lime
250g courgettes, trimmed and coarsely grated
100g Cooks’ Homebaking Dark Chocolate Curls
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda. Beat the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl until creamy.
