It's not often that I do this, but the current glut of courgettes in my veg patch has necessitated creativity! This week, I'm sharing a courgette cake recipe that, after some experimenting, I think works well. Instead of the usual poppy seeds, I use chia seeds.
175g caster sugar
3 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons milk
175g self-raising flour (can use spelt)
2 medium courgettes, grated
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons chia seeds
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a 22cm square brownie tin with greaseproof paper.
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, then add the eggs and milk bit by bit. Fold in the flour, courgettes, baking powder, seeds and lemon zest. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
Once the cake is ready, remove from the oven. Allow to cool completely, turn out, and then cut into rectangular fingers or squares.
Some people think cake consumption is directly correlated with well-being... but I couldn't possibly comment!
