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
