We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.

May she rest in peace.

Courgette Chocolate Brownies


150g Shiptons organic white flour

50g butter

50g sugar (any type, add more if necessary, this isn't a super-sweet recipe)

A decent glug of olive oil

Milk or greek yoghurt to bind

3tbs cocoa powder (sweetened or unsweetened)

One large courgette, grated into the bowl to catch the liquid

1 tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 200, fan 190. Mix everything together in a large bowl, combine really well and tweak for sweetness, chocolately-ness or liquidy-ness. This is a marvellously forgiving recipe that I concocted to make with my children, so it's capable of tasting good, no matter how many (clean) little hands have added this and that!

Splodge out into an oiled oven dish (similar to a lasagne dish), pebbledash with chocolate buttons if you have some and bake until cooked through, with a little bit 'bounce' on top. Cool, sprinkle with icing sugar and cut into squares.
