SALTY PLUM CAKE
Today we decided to have a brunch with some friends, so I cooked a mix of salty and sweet stuff: croissants filled with Nutella, jam or Frankfurters and cheese; an apple cake, courgettes muffins and other little things. I start posting the recipe of this plum cake, a very nice surprise. Quick and easy to make and very, very tasty. Perfect for a buffet, an aperitif or a brunch.
Ingredients for a 20 cm baking-tin
70 ml milk
70 ml olive oil
200 g self raising flour
100 g pitted green olives
70 g honey-roasted ham
70 g cheese ( I've used goat's cheese, but you can use Emmenthal, Edamer, Gruyere or Cheddar)
10 g grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
Turn on the oven to 180 degrees.
Chop the cheese, ham and olives.
Beat the eggs with salt and pepper in a bowl. When frothy, add the milk and the oil; then the flour.
Mix well, then add the cheese, the ham, the olives and the Parmesan and mix again. Grease the tin with butter, then cover with flour ( to be quick I use baking paper!). Now pour the mixture in it and put in the oven for about 30-35 minutes. When cold cut into slices and serve.
