    Preparation Time: 10 mins
    Cooking Time: 45 mins

    Serves: 6


    120g butter (softened)

    This recipe is a great way of getting children to eat more vegetables and has been a regular feature on the lunch menu at Landscove Primary School and the children seem to love it.

    1. Line a 20 x 35cm baking tray with baking paper and set the oven to 190�C/350�F.

    2. Mix the butter, oil and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, one at a time and then the milk until mixed thoroughly.

    3. Sift the dry ingredients together and fold into the mixture. Stir in grated and peeled courgettes, vanilla and spoon into tin. Bake for 35 -45 minutes.

    Cut into squares whilst still warm.

    I have a similar recipe that I used when I planted 15 (yes Five-teen) zucchini plants.
    I was: Buried Alive in zukes & desperate!

    It makes a really moist chocolate cake & you'd never know the squash was in there!
