Has #GBBO inspired you to get in the kitchen and get baking? Try this delicious cake using lemon-infused Borderfields rapeseed oil


Courgette and macadamia nut cake

Cold pressed rapeseed oil contains half the saturated fat of olive oil, and is a great source of essential fatty acids, omega 3, 6 and 9. Borderfields was launched in 2005 by a group of farmers who wanted to create a healthy and delicious cold pressed rapeseed oil sourced solely from British fields. This recipe uses the Borderfields Lemon Infused version.
