I keep trying to think up ways of using courgettes, always have too many at once. Last night we had baked veg, courgettes, red onion, runner beans, tomatoes, basil,cream cheese in it and topped with cheddar and baked in the oven. The juices ran into the rice we had with our fish, which was nice.
Fruity Courgette Cake
6 oz butter
12 oz Vergoise soft brown sugar
12 oz SR flour & 1tsp baking powder
12 oz grated courgettes, including skin
12 oz mixed dried fruit
Slosh of milk (so it’s easier to mix, less stiff)
1 tps Cinnamon
1 tps4 épices or mixed spice
Grease and line a 10” round cake tin. Oven at 180°, turn down to 160° after 20 mins
Cream the softened butter with the sugar until pale, beat in the eggs.
Fold in the flour then the milk and the other ingredients.
Pour into tin and bake for 1 hour.
Beat large pot of cream cheese, Philadelphia type, with zest of an orange, icing sugar to taste and a spoon of marmalade.
