What a great thread!
Here is another lemon and courgette cake.
Lemon Courgette Cake
200g (7oz) grated courgette (no need to peel beforehand, and can be green or yellow courgettes)
150g (5oz) caster sugar
125ml (4 fl oz) vegetable oil
200g (7oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon bicarb of soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons lemon zest (about 1 lemon's worth) and the juice for the drizzle, sweetened with extra caster sugar.
Preheat oven to 160C, Gas mark 3. Grease a loaf tin.
In one bowl mix together the courgette, sugar, egg and oil. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Add the lemon zest. Fold the flour mixture into the courgette mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared tin.
Bake for 45 minutes until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. If its still a bit gooey in the middle, another 10 mins should do the trick. Remove from the oven, Prick all over and pour over the lemon juice and sugar mixture and leave to cool.
