Cricket, & chocolate courgette muffins

A bit of a random combo this post...

Not at the allotment, but nature-y so posting about this grasshopper cricket (corrected by science geek little bro!) hitching a ride on my wing mirror after work today. He/she did pretty well hanging on 'til dual carriageway speeds! Impressive little blighter :)


My friend @ work just invited us all over to hers for lunchtime 'tea', so thought I'd try the Chocolate Courgette Cake as muffins. Adjusted the time to 20-25 mins, filling the cases 3/4 full and they worked a treat :) These are the GF versions. I may or may not have had to taste test one...


Also tonight I cooked up this marrow and the jumbo yellow courgette. Made a tasty ratatouille again, with some chorizo thrown in :) The smaller yellow courgettes went in the muffins.

Yum! These look great. I've just posted a similar recipe on my blog for courgette cake (without choc tho)... it's like a carrot cake minus the carrots!

Will give yours a go! x

I've been seeing a lot of courgette and chocolate combination recipes recently. Must try some out. Your muffins look delicious.

That's a great way to use up the yellow courgettes which you're not so fond of, waste not want not.
