Carrot and Zucchini Cake – the correct version thanks to Teresa!!!

Carrot and Zucchini Cake

I just received a comment on the website from a lovely old patient of mine querying a recipe! Some how the wrong recipe had been uploaded and we had a zucchini cake minus the zucchini! As I am a BIG fan of putting vegetables in as many dishes as possible it needed to be set right! So please try this recipe and let me know what you think! I have made it numerous times with gluten free flour (Orgran gluten free flour) and it turns out beautifully.  As all of my patients know, I love to cook healthy food, but I also generally need my recipes to be quick to throw together – hence you’ll find quick, to the point instructions! I bought a few zucchinis today, so tomorrow I shall retest this recipe and hopefully snap a few photos for you!
