Savory Loaf Cakes: Cheese, Cashewnut And Bell Pepper Cake

Savory Loaf Cakes: Cheese, Cashewnut And Bell Pepper Cake - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Savory cakes are very popular in France, they appear in boulangeries and with a side salad on lunch menus in chic cafes, but they are most likely to appear at a picnic. Yummy savory cake filled with cheese, cashew nuts, caramelized onions and bell peppers.
It tastes incredible. This cake is super simple to make and you can always make a scrumptious loaf cake using all the fresh produce available in the current season. I find this so clever.

Servings 4


  • 250 gm Flour Plain Flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 150 gm Cheese cut into small pieces (refer notes)
  • 80 gm Cashews roughly chopped
  • 100 gm Bell Pepper Red and Yellow, finely chopped, refer notes
  • 3 - 4 Red Onions finely sliced
  • 4 Eggs
  • 150 ml Olive Oil
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 50 gm Yoghurt Plain
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper Freshly-ground/milled, as per spice tolerance
  • 1/2 bunch Coriander or Parsley; finely chopped


  • Caramelized the sliced onions and keep aside .
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/ and line a loaf tin measuring 22x11cm/8½x4¼inch across the top and 6cm/2½inch deep with baking paper
  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cheese, cashewnuts, bell peppers and caramelized onions
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs until fluffy and pale in color. Then gradually whisk in the oil, milk and yoghurt. Season with the salt and black pepper
  • Fold the flour mixture into the whisked eggs. Try not to overbeat the mixture as this will make the end result tough. (it is better to undermix)
  • Pour the batter into the prepared tin. Sprinkle on top with fresh coriander leaves
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a metal skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. (when I say clean knife, please ignore if melted cheese comes on it, that does not mean it is not cooked. If uncooked batter appears on the knife, it needs further cooking.)
  • Leave to cool in the tin

Recipe Notes

  1. You can use any kind of cheese. I used a mixture of grated cheddar, mozzarella and normal cheese cubes. Also I added a little lesser than mentioned in the recipe. You can even goat’s cheese to make it healthier
  2. If you do not have red and yellow bell pepper, you can always use green bell peppers. The original recipe uses a combination of cheese, pistachios and prunes. So be creative when it comes to the filling.
  3. Use a rubber spatula rather than a whisk to prevent overbeating the flour.
