I found this Lemon, Marmalade and Courgette Cake to be very moist, had a good lemon flavour and little chewy in texture. Went down very well with all those that tried it.

My Uncle said it went well with custard as a pudding.

    A lovely moist cake. I used a mixture of green and yellow courgettes, Benecol instead of butter and Rose’s lemon and lime marmalade, gave it a bit of a tang. This has been the nicest cake I have baked using our glut of courgettes. I have made 2 in as many days, hopefully todays effort will make it to the freezer!
