Rosies Courgette cake

150 g flour Self raising or use levure chimique
200 g bacon bits
100 g chopped Chorizo
400 g grated skinned courgette (Peeling them is up to you, but I did)
1 Carrot
1 sliced onion
3 eggs
2 tablespoons of oil
2 or 3 tablespoons of milk
100 g grated cheese (Cheddar, Gruyère or Emmental)

Grate all the vegetables

Fry the onions and meat, empty on to kitchen paper to soak up the fats.

Squeeze a lot of the water out of the veg, wrap in a tea towel and twist.

Put the flour in a large bowl with a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper.

Make a well in the middle and put the oil and the eggs in. Mix slowly until you obtain a smooth mixture. Add the milk and mix again. Add the grated courgette and carrot  gradually while you keep on mixing. Finally add the meat and  the onion followed by the cheese.
Put in a greased loaf tin
Bake at 180c, for about an hour
Ideally serve warm not hot, but just as tasty cold.
