Carrot and courgette cake

Marketed as a way to get kids to eat veg on the recipe, which I’m not keen on! But I often have these veg to use up! Not tried this yet but I will.


250g butter

200g sugar

3 eggs

250g SR flour

1 tsp bicarb

1 tsp mixed spice

100g grated carrot

100g grated courgette (you could vary these veg amounts to how much you have!


Grease and line 2 round tins

Beat the cake ingredients then add the grated veg

Divide between the tins and bake for 20-25 mins

Make an icing- could be a cream cheese one or recipe suggests using 140g icing sugar and zest and juice of 1 orange

Ice in middle and on top


Recipe says to vary veg to whatever you like!
