⅐This is a delcious way to be creative with veggies and add in courgette to your cake which is complimented by lemon and fig.
Preheat fan oven to 180d or equivalent
In a large bowl add all the dry ingredients; rice flour, salt, vanilla, lucuma, coconut sugar, lemon zest, baking soda and mix well until fully combined
Beat the 2 eggs and add in the other wet ingredients; coconut oil, date syrup, lemon juice and mix well
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture followed by the grated courgette and mix well until fully combined
Transfer into a silicone bread mould or a bread tin lined with parchment paper
Place the figs in the top of the cake mixture middle with the centre of the fruit facing upwards (see picture) and sprinkle on pistachios
Pop into the oven for 30 minutes
Leave to cool for at least 30 mintutes before removing from the tin
It is really important to drain the courgette otherwise the mixture will be too wet. Lucuma is a healing superfood which adds sweetness but can be omitted.
