Just because we’re talking about cakes doesn’t mean they have to be sweet (sorry sweet lovers). Today we're talking savoury cake recipes without the sweet stuff.
Savoury cakes are quick to make, easy, adaptable and delicious. They’re perfect for most eventualities, a light lunch, an appetizer, cocktail nibbles, or at a push a main course, served with other side dishes.
Savoury cakes are also a great way of using up small amounts of leftovers you might have knocking around in the fridge, from roast chicken, fish and, potatoes to odd ends of cheese or herbs.
In true street food style, served piping hot fresh from the pan with the appropriate dips, savoury cakes can be real crowd pleasers. You can also try experimenting with the size of the cake depending on the event. For example bite size, for pre-dinner nibbles and man size for a main course.
What's more the flexibility and adaptabiliy of savoury cakes means there are sufficient recipes to suit a diverse range of occasions and tastes. We have gathered together eight very different savoury cake recipes from gluten free to fragrant Thai to vegan and chicken and sweetcorn which should cover most eventualities.
Produce a dish of any of these hot cakes at party and they are guaranteed to disappear, well…like hot cakes..
