Courgette cake

Courgette in cake? Absolutely. It's deliciously green, healthy and very easy to bake with children.


Preparation method

  1. Before cooking, wash your hands and put on an apron. Weigh and measure all the ingredients. Ask a grown-up to preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Grease a small (500g) loaf tin with a little vegetable oil using a pastry brush.

  2. Place the sugar and butter into a mixing bowl. Using the back of a fork mash the ingredients together until completely combined.

  3. Break the egg into a cup and whisk with a fork. Add the egg to the sugar and butter and stir.

  4. Grate the courgette and add this to the mixture with the flour, mixed spice and lime juice and stir using a wooden spoon.

  5. Put the mixture into the prepared loaf tin. Ask a grown-up to put it in the oven for 20–25 minutes until golden-brown on the top. Serve in slices with some fresh fruit.
