Chocolate marrow cake

My grandad has an allotment where he grows all sorts of fruits and veg, he recently gave my mom a marrow and she didn’t know what to do with it, so I suggested that we could make a cake.



So we made this chocolate marrow cake- the recipe is from the thrifty household blog and you can find it here.

We made ours into a sandwich cake and covered it with chocolate covering (made from double cream and melted chocolate) and chocolate buttons. Grandad had to try and guess the secret ingredient and I think he was quite surprised to find it was his marrow!

The the cake turned out really moist why don’t you give it a try? You could use courgettes as an alternative to marrow.
