    Tee Lee's Note:

    I always remember my great-gramdma making this cake, so when I was given a 3-foot long zucchini by my boyfriend's parents, I called my mom for the recipe. It put a small dent in that monster gourd! This was my first attempt at a cake from scratch and it didn't collapse, so it can't be that tough if I did it.

      This cake is absolutely delicious! It?s moist, rich in flavours, with a perfect balance between the spices, the courgette and the sweet chocolate, and it?s one of your 5 a day! Thank you :)

      Easy to do and yummy! I used only 3/4 cup sugar. Sweet enough for my taste. And I did exactly the same for the recipe. And after 40 minutes it was ready. And the smell was amazing :) Thanks Tasha Leah.
