    French Tart's Note:

    Another one of my savoury "cake" recipes from France. This recipe is slightly more substantial than my Chic and Cheerful - Savoury French Olive, Cheese and Onion Cake, as this recipe contains ham with white wine and port! Serve this as alternative sandwich bread or as a light snack spread with cream cheese or butter. 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. Please note that the texture of this savoury cake is NOT like a sweet dessert cake - it will be slightly holey with a robust and slightly chewy texture, almost like sourdough.

      Very, very tasty. Gruyere is always the magic ingredient. But it was seriously an investment to make this recipe.

      I made this today..I found gruyere cheese at the deli for $18.00 a lb. So, needless to say I substituted. I used a mix of swiss and marble jack. I also used green olives and added (1/2 tsp salt ,big mistake,green olives were salty enough).and 1/4 tsp pepper. I greased a 11x5 pan very well (should of pam sprayed)and (it still stuck)used my conv oven,took 40 minuites to bake..No one liked this,thought it was too salty,had too much olives and ham..And it stuck horribley,I would recommend pam for sure...I did not give this a rating as everyones taste are different..

      I have used this recipe several times now, making substitutions depending on what I had on hand as far as cheese and olives, and even the wines. Each time it has been an out of the ballpark hit. Thanks for sharing!
