:: courgette cake

there's a man named nigel slater.
and i made his bread.

a dense loaf.
packed full of all manner of things sweet and savory.

a melt-in-your-mouth
kind of cake-y slice.

good warm.
drizzled with honey.
or standing alone.

whipped up in mere minutes--
it's the stuff of legend.

it's the kind of bread that
can easily materialize with last week's shopping leftovers.
incorporating pantry basics--
and one or two spare items of produce.

there's that children's song-
"if i knew you were coming i'd have baked a cake!"

now you can.

recipe HERE.
