To go with the Quiche and salad.
This cake recipe will also make fantastic little appetisers if the loaf is cut into small cubes and served with olives, cubes of cheese and savoury spreads.
* 4 eggs
* 1 2/3 cups plain white flour
* 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/3 cup olive oil
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1/4 cup port wine
* 1 1/2 cups pitted green olives or pitted black olives
* 2 cups chopped ham
* 2 cups gruyere or emmental cheese
Heat oven to 200C or 400įF.
In a bowl beat the eggs until pale yellow and frothy.
Stir in flour, baking powder, olive oil, melted butter, wine and port.
Chop the ham, cube the cheese and slice the olives.
Stir in ham, cheese, olives, salt and pepper to taste.
Pour into greased bread tin, loaf tin or cake pan.
Bake for about 50 minutes, or until well risen and golden brown.
This can be frozen in slices or as one whole loaf.
