Courgette Lime Cake (aka Zucchini Lime Cake) with pistachios and thyme makes a wonderfully moist and very pretty bundt cake. A light drizzle of zesty lime icing and a little sugared lime zest is all the decoration this cake needs.
For the second week running I’m having language issues. I’m torn between talking about Courgette Lime Cake and Zucchini Lime Cake. It seems as if half the world talk about courgettes whilst the other half talk about zucchini. Being English, I’d like to stick with courgette, but I’m worried I’ll be causing unnecessary confusion. If I say courgette will half the world think I’m baking with an unusual ingredient that is hard to get hold of (um… Hi there fiddlehead)?
Is courgette a universally understood name for zucchini? Or vice versa? I have no idea. But since this is one cake I don’t want anybody to miss out on and life in the summer holidays is too short to ponder such issues, I’ve decided to flip between the two terms.
I like sitting on fences….
