Lemon and Courgette Drizzle Cake

I’ve already got one recipe on here for a Courgette, Lemon and Yogurt Drizzle cake, but this one doesn’t have Yogurt in it like the other one (as I haven’t got any in the fridge today).  Very quick to make and only takes around 30 minutes to cook in the oven.  I had the oven on to make dinner for the family – Jacket Spuds, and Courgette Eggy Pie (Quiche to all but my family)- so thought that I’d knock a cake up quick for a picnic tomorrow.

Cake Recipelemon and courgette drizzle

4 oz melted butter

4 oz sugar

Grated zest of 2 large lemons

2 eggs

8 oz grated courgette (yellow ones are fab as they look like lemon rind in the cake)

8 oz self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

  • Add it all into a mixing bowl and give it a good stir.
  • Pop it in an 8″ square baking tin – I used my trusty silicon one in a metal one for stability (fab as it doesn’t need greasing)
  • Put it into a preheated oven at 180c for 30 minutes or until skewer comes out cleanly.

Icing

Juice of one large lemon

3 oz Castor sugar

  • Leave the hot cake in it’s tin and prick it all over with the skewer.
  • Give the icing a quick mix and pour it all over.
  • Wait until the cake is fully cooled before taking it out of the tin.
