Beauties, I love this fabulous recipe from Marielle Alix for a delicious looking Pistachio courgette cake!

Love that it uses great ingredients – healthier than your normal cake!

Here’s a quote from Marielle about the recipe:

“This cake is a little twist on the carrot cake, with a little goat or coconut yogurt drizzle to jazz it up too J.

Made with courgettes instead of carrots to give you a moist cake, gluten free flours are a mix of almond powder, quinoa and rice flours.  I always have quinoa flakes on hand and to make flour I just whizz them for a few seconds in my Nutribullet. So easy and practical!”

INGREDIENTS for 1 cake / 8 people

  • 150g ground almonds
  • 50g gluten free flour (I use 25g each of quinoa and rice flour) – to make quinoa flour I simply whizz quinoa flakes for a few seconds in my Nutribullet
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g courgette
  • 150ml honey or maple / yacon syrup
  • 60ml olive oil
  • 1 lime zest
  • 50g chopped pistachios
