Savoury Ham and Cheese Cake

Ham and Cheese Cake

There's been a few posts lately on other blogs with recipes for savoury cake, apparently a fairly common thing to have with drinks in France.

This recipe's based on those – it's basically a glorified muffin recipe and was very popular in the Young household when I made it last week.

It would be great made with olives but this blog's meant to be about local food so this one's made with Leicester Cheese and my home-cured ham – it's great for using up the bit that won't go through the slicer!

250g plain flour
4 eggs
150ml oil
75ml milk or wine
2 teasp mustard powder
2 heaped teasp baking powder
Salt and Black Pepper
Filling: I used about 100g grated Red Leicester and about 150g ham in small chunks

Mix all the wet ingredients together. Mix into the dry ingredients then mix in the filling. Put into a greased loaf tin and bake at about 180°C for 40-50 minutes.

I added a good handful of chives to this one. You can use what filling you fancy, ham, bacon, sausage, cheese, olives, sun-dried tomatoes or even give it a Thai influence as here on "A Foodie Froggy in Paris".
