    • 100g sugar
    • 75ml honey
    • 75ml olive oil
    • 2 eggs
    • 250g flour

    How to make Little Italian Courgette Cakes
    1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F / gas 4. 
    2. Mix all the ingredients together.
    3. Divide between muffin/cupcake cups.
    4. Sprinkle a few nuts over the top of the cakes, if you like. Pine-nuts or flaked almonds work beautifully. 
    5. Bake on a low rack in the oven for 25-30 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    6. Drizzle a bit of honey over the top and tuck in. 
    7. The cakes will store for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
