Courgette cake is a slightly lighter version of carrot cake. Its still spiced and contains lots of chopped walnuts, it also has all the moistness from the grated courgettes, but it is much zestier and lighter cake than a carrot cake. The frosting is a lime cream cheese frosting, and this balanced with the sweet, spiced nutty moist sponge, just gives the most perfect spring summer alternative to that classic carrot cake.

Sponge: A moist & nutty complex sponge, full of grated courgette, nutmeg & cinnamon and lime zest

Can I freeze this cake: YES! All our cakes freeze very well.

Simply wrap them in cling film, or cling film and a small piece of greaseproof. Label the outside of the cake with the date & the flavour of the cake, so you know exactly what it is when you defrost it. To defrost, simply take out of the freezer and leave at room temp for about 4hrs, undo the clingfilm so it is loose but not uncovered.
