Courgette, Lemon and Yogurt Drizzle Cake

000_0052 This is a lovely moist cake, with no obvious signs of courgette that some visiting friends loved this afternoon so much that I had to make another one for us as soon as they’d left.   I was wondering what to make to use up a bit more courgette and the carton of out of date un-opened Greek yoghurt in the fridge when this idea came to me.

Cake Mix Ingredients

4 oz Butter, melted

3.5 oz castor sugar

grated zest of one lemon

6 oz of peeled and grated courgette

8 oz self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs

1 tbsp runny honey

Half a large carton of Greek Natural yoghurt (about 125 mls or 4.5 oz)

Drizzle Ingredients

Juice of 1 lemon

3 oz icing sugar


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees, and get your cake tin ready.  You need a 9″ spring-form cake tin –  I normally use the butter and flour method rather than lining the tin with grease proof paper as I find it quicker.

Melt the butter in the microwave, cream in the sugar, then add all the other ingredients and stir quickly.

Spoon into the prepared cake tin.

Pop in oven for 35 mins approx at 180 degrees, or until a skewer comes out clean, and/or the cake has come away from the edges of the cake tin, and/or it smells like it’s cooked ( this is how my Mum taught me to cook!  If you start being able to smell the cake, it’s nearly cooked!!)

Take it out and quickly mix up the drizzle ingredients, pop a few hole in the tops of the cake and pour the drizzle lavishly over.  You can make the drizzle mix as thick as you want, but I like it so that it slowly drips off a spoon.

Enjoy x
