1 olher de sopa de fermento
140g queijo limiano
90 gr pistachios grosseiramente picados
90 gr azeitonas pretas descaroçadas
1 iogurte natural
sal e pimenta q.b.
Pré-aquecer o forno a 180ºC and preparar uma forma rectangular com papel vegetal. Cortar o papel de forma a ser fácil remover o bolo quando pronto da forma, puxando o papel nas laterais.
Numa tijela misturar todos os ingredientes secos, primeiro a farinha e o fermento e depois o queijo, pistachios e azeitonas. Noutro recipiente bater bem os ovos e adicionar o leite, azeite e iogurte. Mexer bem. Adicionar a esta mistura os ingredientes secos e com uma colher de pau/espátula envolver os dois preparados tentando não "bater" demasiado mas ter o cuidado de toda a farinha estar bem incorporada.
Colocar a massa na forma e levar ao forno cerca de 35/40 min (testar com o palito para verificar a cozedura, palito seco está pronto!).
Arrefecer, cortar e deliciar com os aromas e o sabor :)!
Whenever I go to a friends house for a dinner party or just a simple gathering I always like to bring something to eat...usually I tend to choose sweets like a chocolate cake, a cheesecake or a mousse. This time I wanted to make something savory for my friends birthday. Savory cakes is something that we use in my country and the common version has bacon, salami, chouriço and other dried meats. It is very good for a picnic, children parties or a quick lunch.
My motivation was to make something a litlle different and not using any meat. I had some pistachios at home and that was the first thing I thought it would be interesting to use. Then I found a recipe from Rachel Khoo "Little Paris Kitchen" using pistachios and prunes. I changed the recipe and made it with pistachios, cheese and olives. And what a good match it turned out to be.
250g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
140g cheese (used Limiano cheese, a salty and rich cheese)
90 gr pistachios roughly chopped
90 gr black pitted olives
120ml olive oil
1 natural/plain yoghurt
salt and pepper as needed
Preheat the oven at medium temperature 180ºC/350F and prepare a rectangular tin with parchment paper. Cut the paper in order to be easy when cooked, to pull out the cake from the tin pushing the sides of the parchment paper.
In a bowl mix all the dried ingredients: flour, baking powder, cheese, pistachios and olives. In another bowl whisk the eggs very well and add the milk, oil and yoghurt. If you like add salt and pepper as needeed but it depends of the cheese and pistachios saltiness (have that in mind).
Gently fold the dried ingredients with the egg misture, use a spatula (it's better to undermix).
Pour the batter into the tin and bake it for 35/40 minutes (check it with the toothpick method :) ).
Cool the savoury cake and start cutting and discover the beautiful smells and flavours.
