The Riverford cake recipe is good. P makes it a lot, and has already had enough surplus to make it once this year. doh But not with GF flour, so I am not tempted by it. smile monster

I've just made the courgette, rosemary and lemon bread http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/lemon_rosemary_zu.....ini_bread/ and it is surprisingly good.   I will definitely be making it again.

waveFor those with a glut of courgettes/zucchini I love these (& so do most kids). Use a good strong Cheddar cheese if you don't have Pecorino or Parmesan. These are bite-sized ones for nibbles but they are great larger as a burger in a bun. I have also added chopped red peppers or chillies etc.

 

*** Oh, I forgot to say basil leaves, chopped finely, are a great addition to the mixture.

You also can add little bits of ham, or cooked bacon cubes & I have added smoked salmon off-cuts.  I am a great fan of veg. fritters.....very tasty with a home-made salsa or dip......Mmmmmm !!!  Now I want them for breakfast....laugh

Butternut Squash Pancake:

I know this isn't actually a courgette recipe (although there is one on the same page,which I also made; V.good) but I happened to have a lovely butternut squash delivered to me yesterday in my Ocado grocery order. I was looking for an Asian recipe & an American friend had suggested this site which is predominately Korean. I love trying new stuff so had a go at it¦..it was delicious so I thought I would share it with you. I cut my julienne a little thinner. The dipping sauce was good with both recipes. 

 

http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/hobakjeon

 

I think this site might be a real find for me. She has videos on YouTube, which can be very useful if you are not quite sure how to prepare certain dishes or how things are supposed to turn out¦..!! You can access these through her pages.   I am going to try more of her recipes today, there is a huge list of them¦..smile

I love the chocolate cake recipe too though I've been playing with it and the ones I make now are more brownie like.

The recipe is great because it works really well if you get back from a trip and find out that your courgettes have turned into marrows. No one in my house eats stuffed marrow and there is only so much I can add to a chutney.

How have you adapted it? More brownie like sounds good! I will need to try a gluten free version... I have my own zucchini surplus, and P's courgette surplus, to deal with for the next month, so I will need lots of ideas! Chutney is on the go, and I will do zucchini pickle, which I forgot about until yesterday. doh

I think I posted the recipe last year, but will try to find it if not. It is easy, salt the zucchini and onion for an hour, heat the vinegar and spices and pour over the drained squash and onion and soak for an hour, then boil for 3 minutes and put into sterilized jars. And it is very good!

My friend has lots of jars of that sort of pickle too. At least if you let the skins harden on the marrows they do last quite a while. cheers
