Courgette Cake Recipe
For those of you who asked, here it is!
For the Courgette Cake
6 oz Courgettes grated
2 large eggs
5 oz soft brown sugar
8 oz self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
I basically popped all of the above in to my mixer and then cooked the cake for 20 minutes on 180 or gas mark 4.
For the topping
7 oz cream cheese
1/2 lime juiced
4 oz caster sugar
Use some of the zest of the lime to decorate.
I also popped this in to the mixer, I actually used a whole lime when I made it, but it came out very runny, so it was more like a sauce. Hey you choose what you want to do.
You could always do a thicker icing for the top and have a bit left over to make runny by adding more lime jucie, which you could then drizzle over the cake when serving it.
Listen to me, I will be calling myself Nigella next.
I am going to make the Lavender Heart Cookies next.
Hope you enjoy the cake?.. Em x
