ZUCCHINI, MUSHROOM & PARMESAN PLUMCAKE

PLUMCAKE SALATO ZUCCHINE, CHAMPIGNONES & PARMIGIANO”  in italiano

I’ve been baking cakes for years but very few know that I have a sweet tooth for savoury food and not for cakes. I love everything bread-based, bread everywhere and in every shape, even in the shape of a savoury plumcake!

I made this plumcake because I had some left-overs from other recipes, and this is all it was going to be, a simple plumcake, nothing more.

It turned out to be one of the best savoury plumcakes ever!

It did last less than a day and I had half of it in a just a few minutes, yes I loved it that much!

Don’t be fooled by its appearance when it is still hot/warm, I know it looks like it is still slightly undercooked, but it is not. Just leave it to chill and you’ll see how good it is!
