Summer gardens produce an excess of zucchini; summer recipes call for an abundance of it. The result: the odd vegetable or three left in the refrigerator at the end of every week in the height of the season. I turn to my mandoline to julienne the leftover zucchini for a fresh take on desserts. Zucchini adds a moist texture to cakes and breads. It goes hand in hand with chocolate; the finer the pieces of each, the more friendly to the palette.

<p>This looks very good. Thanks for sharing and do have a great day!</p><p>sunshiine</p>
<p>Interesting and delicious looking recipe. I'v never thought about making a courgette cake with this ingredient, I add ginger to give mine a zing and the previous recipes I've seen look more like a chocolate cake with a bit of courgette added. Yours looks like a true marriage of flavours, can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing and all the best from France, Sue</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
