A great way to sneak veg into reluctant children’s diets!
Follow the instructions here:
My variations were:
I used butter, not margarine.
I only had 400g courgettes, so that’s what I used.
I didn’t have cocoa powder, so I used some fancy Montezuma’s Real
Chocolate for Drinking that’s been languishing in the back of the
cupboard since a few Christmases ago! This is why my cake has a speckled
effect instead of looking like chocolate cake.
I used a food processor until the point of folding in the flour; this I did by hand.
My batter didn’t need any milk to achieve dropping consistency.
In my gas oven the tray bake took over an hour to cook; the instructions said 35 mins!
