For this SAVORY ZUCCHINI CAKE, I was inspired by the recipe I found on Mediterranealicious website. This cake/bread is packed with flavour: apart from zucchini, it contains Feta and Parmesan cheese, olives and chorizo. It is delicious as is or served with a dried tomato tapenade, an artichoke purée, smoked salmon, dried sausage or cheese.
I invite you to visit Mediterranealicious website to see how to make it.
1 tablespoon baking powder
100ml/ 3.5 oz milk
1 heaping tablespoon crème fraîche
5 tablespoons olive oil
200g/7oz zucchini, ground or chopped
100g/3.5 oz green or black olives
30g/1oz parmesan cheese, grated
3 heaping tablespoons chorizo, chopped and roasted
1 heaping teaspoon chopped parsley
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of paprika
Instead of using a loaf pan, I baked mine in five (5) mini bakeable loaf pans that I placed on a baking sheet.
These containers also make it easy to bring some of this savory cake as a hostess gift.
I prefer serving this savory cake lukewarm or at room temperature.
It’s a fun recipe which can be made ahead of time when planning a party.
