You see that is the fun in baking with vegetables, you feel you are making something tasty and nutritious.

Serves 6


* 375g Plain flour
* 3 Tsp Baking powder
*100ml Sunflower oil
* 250g Castor sugar
* 250g Zucchini
* 1/2 Tsp Vanilla essence
* 1 Tsp Cinnamon powder
* 1/2 Tsp Salt
* 2 Eggs
* About 2 fistful of walnut pieces


Coarsely grate the zucchini and put in a sieve. Press with the back of a spoon or your hand, to drain out as much water as possible. It is important to drain it thoroughly.

Beat the eggs until light. Add the oil,sugar, essence and zucchini. Mix until all combines. Sift the dry ingredients and make a well in the center.
