The other day, V. asked me what I was making for dinner.
"A cake" I said.
"A cake ?? No but what's for dinner" he responded.
"A cake, like a salted cake with ham and olives, and a salad"
Silence. Then a 'what is she talking about' look on his face...
This one is close to being a classic in France. You can have it for lunch/dinner with a salad or for the 'aperitif' with drinks and snacks...
Such a no-brainer and so easy to make, I love it.
Here's the recipe :
200g smoked ham
200g pitted green olives
150g gratted swiss or mild cheddar cheese
1 glass of dry white wine (for the recipe, not for you)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbs 1/2 baking powder
Pepper (no need for salt)
Preheat the oven to 400F
Butter an 11-inches long loaf pan
Mix the flour, eggs and baking powder together
Add the white wine and the oil
Then chop the olives and ham and add it to the mix
Lastly add the cheese and pepper
Bake for 50 min
Let it cool for a little bit and serve lukewarm or cold
Voila ! Enjoy
Oh by the way, V. loved it (thanks God)
