No I haven’t abandoned you, it’s just that I’m a little bit too busy for blogging these days. I have a bunch of recipes and photographs ready to be posted but I rarely get the time to write a nice post. Emails go unanswered. I don’t respond to comments. My growing beard makes me look like Robinson Crusoe.
Something that makes me happy is this truly fantastic recipe for a savory loaf cake. The one pictured below lasted less than 45 min at Big Bossman’s and generated lots of oohhs and aahhs in its short life. If you never tried a savory cake this is your chance, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. How could you go wrong really with a warm and soft brioche type cake filled with smoked bacon, gruyere, green olives and sundried tomatoes. Serve it with a green salad for a quick lunch on the go. Tell me what you think.
