Courgette & Coconut cake (GF, DF & refined sugar free) I made this up this morning because I had so many courgettes in my garden ready to pick. A light teatime cake that’s not too sweet. Excellent way to use up all those courgettes from the garden!
A light & most cake, with grated courgette and desiccated coconut, makes a great alternative to carrot cake – top with rich cream cheese icing or coconut frosting (recipe to follow).
Note: We don’t have much of a sweet tooth her at Satya yoga but if you do, just up the quantity for the maple syrup by 10-20g and sugar by 20-50g.
