Courgette cake / Zucchini cake

This courgette cake is so tasty and totally beats carrot cake every time. Got this recipes at random recipe from my Mum and don’t know where she got it. It forms a sort of sugary crunchy top and is moist in the middle. I usually make it in a loaf tin.

2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/3 cups grated courgette/zucchini
2/3 teaspoons baking soda
nuts/raisins/seeds as you like it
