Cake flour creates a crumby foundation for this savory bread featuring ham, peas, soft cheese and fennel seeds, along with other flavor-bombs like Parmesan cheese. Before it's baked, the whole shebang is topped with slivered almonds, meaning there's crunch to contend with, too. A light meal in itself, the bread can be buttered or eaten out of hand simply as is.

Ingredients

  • 160 grams cake flour
  • 60 grams flour
  • 8 grams yeast
  • 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 100 grams soft cheese
  • 150 milliliters whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 100 grams cooked ham
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Through a sieve, add the flours, parmesan cheese, yeast and pinches of salt, black pepper.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the soft cheese with the milk.
  4. Add the egg and oil and beat for 2 minutes.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix well.
  6. Add the ham and fennel seeds and mix well.
  7. Lightly oil and flour a cake pan. Add the batter and smooth the surface. Top with almonds.
  8. Cook for 50 minutes, cover with foil halfway through to prevent burning.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This is a great cake especially for someone who loves cake but is not a big fan of super sweet cakes. This is extra savory and crammed full of ham and healthy peas. I used fresh peas from the market and follow it according to directions. It is slightly salty but not overpowering. A 5 star recipe I see on our table in the future.
