nigel slater’s apple and courgette cake

I just finished baking  the most delicious apple and courgette cake (a courgette is a zucchini for those looking a bit puzzled). It’s from Nigel Slater’s latest book Tender Volume II, a huge book filled with amazing looking recipes, gorgeous typography and stunning photography. It is full of recipes inspired from Slater’s own “kitchen garden” which is really an entire backyard that has been segregrated with the use of box hedges to create areas for  huge array of fruit and vegetables.  I’m super jealous. I hope to post a proper review of this book (and Tender Volume I which features vegetables) at a later date but for now I am simply going to enjoy my cake with a cup of tea.
