Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Zucchini/ Courgettes and Feta Cake

About a couple of years ago I found a cookbook by Sophie Dudemaine “Sweet and Savoury Loaves and really loved the concept.

Easy prepared cakes looking good and tasting even better…..
Here I found a cake made with Zucchini and adapted the recipe a bit to my liking.


150g flour
1 sachet or 2 tbsp baking powder
3 eggs
80ml oil
125ml milk
½ tsp salt
½ freshly ground pepper
100g grated Cheese (a mature cheese would be great fro that, something like a Gruyere)
200g Feta Cheese, cut into cubes
1-2 Zucchini, cut into cubes


Thoroughly mix the flour with baking powder, eggs, oil, milk, salt and pepper.
Add the grated cheese, Feta and Zucchini.
Mix everything until well combined.
Use a non-greased loaf form.
Preheat the oven on 180°C and bake the cake for 45 minutes, until crispy brown and golden.
