My Small Boy, who is ten years old and increasingly wise to my wily ways with vegetables, adores this cake. The courgettes are smuggled in, disappearing in their blandness, to lend a moist, almost fudgy texture. It is, incidentally, vegan as well, the marmalade replacing eggs in some miraculous twist of science. I’d go as far as to suggest that a cake made entirely of plants is practically a salad, if you need any further convincing; it’s what I tell myself when my child has seconds, anyway
