About this recipe: Excess courgettes on my allotment forced me to try other methods of using them up - it came to the stage of even friends were refusing to take them off our hands! This recipe is a great way of getting kids to eat more vegetables and children seem to love it.
Pumpkin or squash can be substituted in the same quantities for courgettes.
Altered ingredient amounts. I put icing sugar with cocoa and mixed with water to make a chocolatey icing, adding to the sweet appeal for my children! - 04 Oct 2009
This cake was delicious.. Didnt tell my teenage sons or their girlfriends what was in it & all tucked in!! So moist & stays fresh for days in air tight tin. I added 1tsp of mixed spice too - 03 Sep 2010
