I have resorted to name calling (in my head); The Witches of Eastwick. Hey, I know what they think of me, they have told me, so don't feel sorry for them. I wouldn't normally vent on my blog, but they are grating on me, every day.
My mum has a no-fail courgette cake recipe, that when I am home I always use at least once, in that holiday. It has been a favourite for years.
I found this one on a blog the other day (can't remember who, and I have tried to find it since, but can't...is it yours??If so-thank you!).
Courgette (Zucchini) Muffins
1 large courgette (grated and then squeezed through kitchen towel)
1 cup of light brown sugar
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar (I used unrefined whole sugar)
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
a large handful (about 75g) of roughly chopped walnuts
Whisk sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs.
In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt.
Add to mixture with courgette and nuts. Fold.
Divide into cases and bake for about 20 minutes.
(Since my oven has on and off-no joke...I couldn't tell you the temperature. I am guessing, 'hot'. )
1 cup of cream
1/2 cup of sour cream
3 tablespoons of icing sugar
whole walnuts to decorate
I made these for my running buddy, who has some great (hohoho!) advice!
