I tasted savoury cake for the first time at one of our family french friend's birthday party few years back, i got hooked immediately to those savoury cake which she prepared with carrots and chicken..I got her recipe immediately,later back home i tried it simply with zucchini and feta cheese,we just loved it, from that day onwards i tried out making savoury cake with many variations by mix and matching veggies and meats..Personally i felt that i can feed easily my small family with any sort of veggies by making this savoury cake and serving them either for their lunch or for dinner..
Yesterday i prepared this wonderful looking savoury cake with roasted bellpepper,sauteed broccoli and onions with cornmeal and all purpose flour...I served this savoury cake warm simply with a lettuce tomato salad and we had a filling,delicious and healthy dinner..You can add any sort of veggies to make this cake more healthier and colourful..Kids will definitely love this spongy savoury cake for their dinner or lunch with some grilled meats or simply with their favourite salad...This cake goes directly to Srivalli's Breakfast Mela and to Creative Concoctions#4 - Cooking With Olive oil hosted by Ivy..
