Courgette, apple & buckwheat cake

We seem to have done plenty of the sowing and picking posts, at the expense of the cooking and eating bits (which surely is the best part of allotment gardening) and, I think, have been guilty of straying into the dark, murky waters of smugness and self congratulations on being such worthy urban allotment warriors. Well, pish to that - I'm interested in being a smug, self congratulating, fat and sated allotment gardener, to which end Sarah has been coming up with incredible ways to use the glut of marrows and courgettes we've been having recently.

Here are the before and after pictures of last night's incredible edible.



Not only is it the about the tastiest cake in the world, it's also gluten-free, dairy free and relatively low GI, as Sarah used agave syrup instead of sugar. It's just about the healthiest cake you'll come across.

I'm not privy to the recipe, however, so I'll have to rely on Sarah to do the honours...

  1. Cheesy peeps, that was good cake! I'll have to ask Sarah to post the recipe so you can all share the love. Or at least share cake, which, in my opinion, is almost as good. Or keep the whole thing to yourself and gorge till you explode, which, in the grand scheme of things, is probably even better. It's okay, you won't go to hell just for eating all the cake - you'd probably have to also leave the dirty dishes in the sink for your flatmate to wash for that to happen...

  2. yes, please!
    post the recipe of what sounds like a fab dish!
