Another version of the ‘salted cake’. Same base as on Day 84 but with different filling and I bake it in a muffin shape, it’s handy for the lunchbox.

Une autre version du cake salé, sur la même base que le jour 84. Toujours aussi bon. J’utilise mes moules à muffin parce que c’est joli et très pratique.

Day 84: Salted cake, strange name isn’t it?

Menu du jour:



A ‘salted cake’ is a very typical dish in France. Practical to eat and easy recipe, it is very often served cold with a salad. It can be prepared in advance. It is the perfect dish for a crowd, picnic or buffet style lunch or dinner. It can take so many flavors, based on taste and season. It’s pretty much always the same base, just different main ingredients. A kind of variation on a muffin base, but salted. Check out the NYTimes article about it here and recipe here. I also like the recipe I referenced in the menu for the simple “base” explanation and flavoring options!

Le cake salé, une recette savoureuse, qui se renouvelle en fonction des gouts et des saisons. Un classique en France.
