This little addition to the "appéritif" circuit is quite Moorish. Generally served warm, these cakes are quite dense in a rich sense of the word, which goes perfectly with a pre dinner drink or two! As for what to put into them is really up to you, generally there is one sort of cheese, some herbs and a third element like a cured meat, some nuts or a vegetable - let the experiments begin! (Goat cheese and mint is a favourite I do remake!)
Today I have gone with bacon, parmesan and rocket/arugula...
This is for two small 'cake' tins worth (or a small loaf tin if not).
200g(0.85 of a cup!) flour
60g/quarter cup parmesan cheese
120ml/ half cup of milk
60ml/quarter cup of olive oil
handful of chopped rocket/arugula
7/8 slices of chopped cooked bacon
salt and pepper
Mix the flour and cheese and add the eggs, milk and oil. Once well mixed, fold in the rocket, salt and pepper.
Into the oven at 180°C/350°F- cook for about 35 to 45 minutes.
Let cool a few minutes before slicing.
