LP - a lot of the cakes with veg in taste better the day after they're made and most banana cakes are better 2 or 3 days later - assuming you can plan ahead for guests.
I have a chocolate courgette cake in the oven. Never done it before but am told it's good. Just done half the quantities in a 7" square tin tho.
Chocolate Courgette Cake – best eaten the day after baking
450g courgettes - peeled and finely grated
180g cooking chocolate, grated
125ml grape seed oil
125g softened butter
360g soft brown sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
1 sachet baking powder
3tbs cocoa powder
Peel, de seed and grate the courgette then squeeze dry in a clean tea towel.
In the processor, combine the oil, butter and sugar then add the eggs and all the other ingredients in turn till well combined.
Pour into a prepared 10 inch square cake tin and bake at 180C for 45 mins or till done.
Allow to cool in the tin then turn out and cover with a chocolate ganache.
