So, my allotment has been growing out of control lately and I’m desperately trying to use or gift all the produce – it really does all come at once!
One of the main things I’m having trouble with is courgettes – once my absolute favourite vegetable I’m now more than a little tired of them in their steamed, ribboned, or stir-fried form so I’m looking for new ways to use them up!
A friend suggested that I make a courgette cake, which I had already heard of so I decided to seek out and road test a new recipe. None amongst my usual cookery book collection meant I ended up on Google which lead me to Organikal and a re-posting of Nigella’s Courgette Cake.
As for the review… it was seriously good. I’m a big fan of carrot cake so the cream cheese frosting went down really well, but it was also a whole lot easier to make than carrot cake – less faffing with ingredients. And the end result was a much lighter cake – more suited to summer and incredibly moist. Dare I say it – it also didn’t appear to be as sinful as the usual Nigella Lawson style.
What are you waiting for? Go try it out and let me know how you got on!!
