Just interested to know as we have a glut on the allotment and I have Mary Berrys recipe does it really taste ok?

No, it doesn't taste "okay" . . . it tastes absolutely delicious!

I have. Perfectly normal sponge smile to my surprise. In terms of taste, you wouldn't have been able to tell it apart from a non-courgette cake. It was a bit more springy than my usual cakes (yay!) and had an ever-so-slight greenish tinge (if you looked really hard).

I make courgette and cheese muffins. They are so light and fluffy. We eat them fresh from the oven with a smear of butter for breakfast.

Lovely, very moist! Needs eating in a day or 2 though I find

Yep, they are lovely smile However, one I once made with an orange flavoured cream cheese topping (from the recipe) was the most hideously sickly thing I've ever tasted -due to the topping

The BBC Good Food chocolate & courgette cake is sublime.

I want to try this to redeem myself from banana bread catastrophe

Can anyone recommend any tips before I start?
