James Hillery, contestant on the Great British Bake Off 2017, allotment holder and chicken keeper, has some delicious baking ideas to use courgettes and rhubarb


In preparation for being a contestant on the Great British Bake Off last year, James was tasked with | developing new and unique recipes i for the various challenges in each episode. Where the episode briefs allowed, he loved to include seasonal produce from his allotment injto the bakes and his chickens gave him a regular supply of eggs.

I was once told that I should sow as many courgette seeds as I think I need. Then give half the plants away and I would still have too many.

Courgettes are such a prolific crop and as much as I love them as a vegetable with my dinner, they are also brilliant for sneaking into cakes without the kids spotting and for adding moisture. A top tip if planning to use them in cakes is to grow a yellow variety. Then they are even harder for the kids to spot.
