Courgette cake for kids

Reuben loves baking. I used to bake regularly with him back in the UK, usually cupcakes but occasionally we ventured into the unknown. At his Montessori nursery they used to bake every Thursday morning which became his favourite day. We've grown courgettes before and if you've ever grown them you'll know that they can completely take over the garden. You also end up with loads of courgettes and I used to search my recipe books to find new and interesting ways to cook them. This recipe is tasty and so easy for kids to do. I weighed out all the ingredients beforehand and then read the recipe out to Reuben who squashed, mixed and poured, before scooping into the muffin tin and baking in the oven. We used a muffin tin as we didn't have a loaf tin small enough. The results were eaten (mostly by Reuben) within a day!

Ingredients: 50g butter, 50g soft brown sugar, 1 egg, 90g self raising flour, 1 teaspoon mixed spice, 60g grated courgette

Brush a small tin loaf or muffin pan with vegetable oil and weigh out all the ingredients. Put the butter and sugar together in a bowl and squash together with a wooden spoon until they are both combined. Break the egg into the bowl and mix again until combined. Add the flour and mixed spice and stir again. Add the grated courgette and mix together for the last time. Pour the mixture into the loaf tin. Bake in a preheated oven 200°C, gas mark 7, for 20-25 mins or until golden on top!
