courgette cake


Today is cake day. At least as far as this blog is concerned. This is one moist, delicious, simple, very healthy cake as it contains a whole lot of courgette. Yes indeed. Health for the soul, at least and that certainly is no mean feat. So grab a courgette and let's get baking. You need as follow;

1,5 L cake pan - grease and sprinkle with bread crumbs

3 free range eggs
1,5 dl caster sugar - whisk together until pale and fluffy

75 g butter/oil
2 tsp grated lemon or orange zest
2-3 dl roughly peeled and grated courgette
2 dl roughly grated almond paste - blend all this into the egg-sugar mix

2,5-3,5 dl wheat flour
1,5 tsp baking powder - mix this carefully into the rest of the batter

Bake the cake in the lower part of oven on 175 degrees C for about 45 minutes.

Let cool, then dust with icing sugar for a prettier cake.

Make a pot of tea, pour yourself a cup, slice a piece of warm courgette cake, eat, enjoy, be instantly merry ~

It looks delicious! Now that I know "courgette" is zucchini, I might try the recipe! (It wouldn't come out looking as lovely as yours, though. LOL.)
