Visit my blog for the answer to every cook‘s prayer “Oh God, what shall I make for dinner tonight“ -

Heat the oven to 180/gas 4.

Put the oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla and courgette in a bowl and mix well.

Add the flour, cocoa, ginger and salt and mix again.

Transfer to a lined 20cm cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Cool in the tin for 10 minutes and turn out onto a rack.

Bring the cream to the boil, take it off the heat and stir in the chocolate.

Add a heaped tablespoon of ginger (not too much syrup) and stir again.

Spoon the topping over the cake while it‘s still warm.
