Zucchini Cake with Nuts

 In the supermarket where I do my shopping you can purchase 'fresh boxes', boxes that include fresh vegetables and most other required ingredients for a complete meal for four persons. Our favorite is Thai Green Curry. That particular box contains various vegetables, among which zucchini. My kids hate zucchini, so I leave that one out. But what I hate is to throw good food away, so I was on the look out for something else to make with zucchini and I tried Zucchini Cake. Not bad, I think. Not bad at all, so here's my recipe.


What you need

120ml sunflower oil 

175grams white caster sugar

bit of salt

2 eggs

200grams of grated zucchini

200grams flour

tbsp baking powder

75grams nuts (pecans are great, but you can choose whatever you like)

2 tbsp full fat yoghurt

125grams icing sugar

What to do

Preheat oven at 175 degrees Celsius

Mix the oil, sugar and salt 

Add the eggs and mix again

Add zucchini, flour and baking powder and mix again

Stir in the nuts

Bake the cake for about an hour


Mix the yoghurt and the sugar until fully combined

Pour over the cake


That's it! Bon appetit!
