I found this recipe in a French magazine. Savoury cakes (cakes salés) are very popular in France. And this is DELICIOUS! I have made it since using artichokes.

180g flour
15g baking powder (or 1 sachet de levure chimique)
3 eggs
100ml milk (10cl)
100ml olive oil (10cl)
4 tablespoons nigella seeds (graines de nigelle)
200g feta, cubed
150g semi-sundried tomatoes (tomates confites), chopped
100g speck or bacon (lard fumé), chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C fan-forced.
  2. Beat the eggs with the milk and olive oil. Combine the flour and baking powder. Pour the  egg/ milk/ oil mixture into the flour and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the feta, tomatoes, bacon and nigella seeds to the batter. Season with pepper (don’t add salt,  the feta and bacon will be enough).
  4. Pour the mixture in a greased and lined loaf tin. Cook 1hr.
  5. Eat!
  6. Nothing to add really! Get baking!
