Courgette and lemon cake

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.
