Servings 12 cupcakes
Author Alzheimer's Society

Ingredients

  • 500 g courgettes grated
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 ml olive oil
  • 250 g ground almonds
  • 150 g gluten-free plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 150 g light brown sugar
  • 4 medium free-range eggs
  • grated zest and juice of 3 lemons plus extra zest for decorating
  • 150 g dairy-free spread
  • 175 g icing sugar

Instructions

  1. Place the grated courgettes in a colander and sprinkle with the salt. Toss well, then place over the sink to drain for 30 minutes. 

  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C/Gas Mark 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. 

  3. In a large bowl, mix together the ground almonds, flour, baking powder and chopped rosemary. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, oil, eggs and lemon zest and juice. 

  4. Rinse the courgettes to get rid of any excess salt and tip onto a clean tea towel. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can, then tip into the almond bowl and mix well. Add the wet ingredients and stir well to make a smooth batter. 

  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin cases and bake for 22-25 minutes, until lightly browned on top. 

  6. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack. 

  7. Mix together the dairy-free spread and icing sugar, then spread a little on each cupcake and sprinkle with lemon zest to serve.
