Requested by @fionasparrow on Twitter who has too many courgettes!!
This is my Mum’s recipe, don’t know where she got it from.
I’m not usually a recipe blogger and my courgette plant isn’t producing enough for me to make one for photo!
But, I promise this is a lovely moist chocolate cake:
8 oz grated courgette
4 oz chopped dates
2 oz raisins
4 tbsp clear honey
4 oz margarine (I use stork)
4 oz light brown sugar (white, if you haven’t got any brown)
8 oz brown flour
2 tsp baking powder
Heat oven to 170*C
grease and line a 9 inch shallow cake tin
Stir courgette, dates, raisins and honey together.
In a separate bowl cream margarine and sugar. Add egg and 2 tblsp water, beat until smooth and glossy.
Fold in sifted flour and baking powder.
Fold in Courgette mixture.
Bake in tin for 55-60 minutes.
