The rest of the courgettes has been used for square baking. Unfortunately, I cannot remember exactly how I made the chocolate courgette squares – they are yummy though, in case you were wondering. ;) But I can give you the recipe for the lemon courgette squares!

Lemon courgette square

Lemon courgette square


150 g grated* courgettes
100 g grated apple
juice of 1.5 lemons
2 eggs
75 g softened butter
100 g cream
150 g sugar
1 dash salt
380 g flour
15 g baking powder
1 dash cinnamon

150 g icing sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon


Mix the grated courgettes, the grated apple, the lemon juice and the two eggs. Beat in the butter, the cream, the sugar and the salt. Mix the flour, the baking powder and the cinnamon in a separate bowl and then slowly stir them into the courgettes mixture. Spoon into a 20 x 30 cm baking tray lined with baking parchment. Bake at 190°C for about 30 minutes.
Mix the icing sugar and the lemon juice to make the icing. Spread it onto the still warm cake.

* Grating is much more fun if you do the voice of the courgette, first pleading you not to let it die this gruesome death and then screaming in mortal agony.
