Courgette and lemon cake

August 19, 2018

This year we took on an allotment whilst also looking after our two young children.  Yes I think we are a bit crazy!!  We planted several courgette plants and had an abundance of courgettes to eat.  Bearing in mind I am the only member of my family who will eat courgettes I have had to find some interesting ways to hide them in our meals.  


I found a courgette and lemon cake recipe which I have tested and tweaked until I was happy.  I made ours a dairy free version so that my daughter could also have some.  Everyone enjoyed it!  Cake for the win.

350g courgette raw
