Courgette/Zucchini brownie

Well after my last blog about the over supply of zucchini Aaron went searching on the web to find a good cake recipe.... we taste tested this one today and all agreed that it is delicious! It is even vegan/lactose free (apart from the icing/frosting)

Zucchini brownies
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups of zucchini grated
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Mix all together - don't worry if it looks dry - once you add the zucchini it will be nice and moist. Cook in a brownie tin at 175C for 25-30 minutes

6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups of icing sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Mix all together and lather on top of the brownie. Yum.
