This unique dessert makes a great healthy option to finnish off dinner or to put in school lunchboxes as a snack. Thanks to the Zucchini, this cake stays super moist and the honey combined with the spices creates the perfect blend of sweetness and flavour. This dish is made using So Good Regular soy milk making it diary free and takes just 30mins to bake in the oven. This great treat is also perfect for picnics with friends or long road trips. For a more full dessert, you can serve this cake with yoghurt and fruit.
