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.
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
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
