Chocolate courgette sponge cake
- Preheat the oven to 180 ºC.
- Peel and grate the courgette and place it on kitchen paper for a few minutes so that the excess moisture is absorbed. Put into a bowl.
- Sift the flour. Set aside.
- Add in the sunflower oil and sugar. Mix well with a whisk.
- Add in the beaten egg and mix.
- Incorporate the flour, cocoa powder, raising agent and salt. Mix well.
- Add in the vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
- Pour into the moulds and bake at 180 ºC for approximately 25 minutes. Check that the sponge cakes are ready by pricking the centre with a skewer.
- Remove from the oven and cool.
- In the meantime, make the chocolate glaze.
- In a saucepan, mix the corn starch and water. Mix until dissolved. Over a medium heat, cook these ingredients and gradually add the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely combined and the glaze starts to thicken. Keep stirring until you get the right consistency.
- Pour the glaze over the sponge cake and set aside for a few minutes.
- Place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- In a modular oven, set the programme 3/4/3.
