Courgette Cake
from Diana Dolman, HiL Rep., Headstone Allotments.


When you have tried courgettes in every way possible then you may not have thought of putting them in a cake.

Plus - Christine Wallace of Cuckoo Hill Allotments advises that if you leave out the nuts then this turns the recipe into Zucchini Bread
