|Can you feel the heat yet?|
So this was my master plan yesterday. A 'get rid of the chillis and courgettes in one go' plan. I acquired a recipe last year for a courgette tea bread (zucchini to you guys across the water) using grated courgettes and chopped walnuts. Only I ate it here, nobody else liked the walnuts. Perhaps because I always refer to them as dried monkey brains.
Anyway, I thought I'd adapt it a bit and add a bit of a 'zing' to the recipe by adding a handful of chilli peppers to the mix... Here's the recipe:
2 oz butter 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of
3 eggs soda
10 oz sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder
8fl oz veg / sunflower oil 1 teaspoon of salt
10 oz plain flour 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
4 oz chopped walnuts 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
PLUS 5, yes 5 red hot chillis! 2 medium Courgettes - grated !!
(Zucchini to you Jim)

Beat the eggs and the oil together with a mixer until it has a nice thick consistancy. Then beat in the sugar, stir in the melted butter and the courgettes and the chopped chillis.
In another bowl, mix all the dried ingredients well and gently fold the dried mix into the wet mixture and then fold in the walnuts.
