Sporting classic Italian flavors, this savory take on Easter cake features a batter that includes potato flakes, rosemary and black pepper — not to mention diced salami and Pecorino cheese. Once it rises, the batter is transferred to dove-shaped baking pans — much like their more traditional, sweet counterparts. The cakes are then brushed with milk, baked until golden and ready to enjoy at a holiday meal.

Ingredients

  • 300 grams raisins
  • 1 1/2 ounces rum
  • 2 eggs
  • 60 grams brown sugar
  • 90 grams butter
  • 120 grams flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons jam
  • salt
  • ground cinnamon
  • slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the raisins in a bowl and add the rum (except for 2 tablespoons) and allow them to marinate for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the eggs and sugar to a bowl and beat until foamy.
  4. In another bowl, cream the butter and add the flour sifted with the baking powder, the beaten eggs, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of cinnamon.
  5. Drain the raisins and add them to the batter, add the almonds and a few tablespoons of the rum used to soak the raisins and stir.
  6. Pour the batter into a parchment paper-lined 10 centimeter by 20 centimeter loaf pan or muffin pan. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 30 minutes. Use the toothpick to test for doneness.
  7. Remove the cake from the oven and brush it with the jam melted on low heat and the rum set aside earlier.
  8. Cool the cake and serve.

I will admit I skipped the rum brushing in the end of the instructions. My thinking is that the rum-soaked raisins would provide plenty of the rum taste. The cake was fluffy and a little dry and crumbly.
