Savory Appetizer Cakes~ Cute and Good~

Hmm.. still some entertaining left to do?

After all NYE is right around the corner.. let me tempt you w/ these..

They are really good and I will offer another little variety soon..

La Recette
Butternut Squash ,Parmesan+ Sage Appetizer cakes

The basis for the recipes~Preheat oven at 350 F.
120 gr flour
2 eggs
70 gr Gruyère cheese
7 cl milk
7 cl evoo
1/2 envelope yeast
salt and pepper

Additional ings

100 gr parmesan cheese
100 gr grated butternut squash(Winter squash is the exact ing..but I only had butternut)
3 fresh sage leaves

Grate your cheeses..reserve

Chop your sage,reserve
Grate your squash and wring out thoroughly, reserve
Before doing the following I keep a bit of cheese to top the cute cakes..
In a bowl,mix the eggs,milk,evoo,salt ,pepper, add the gruyère and parmesan and squash and sage.... then add the flour.. and then gently add the yeast mixing gently..
Pour into your little prepared molds(the silicone ones need no prepping) and
immediately put in oven and bake for ap 30 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean~

Slice and serve warm.. add a touch of salt if you wish~ They freeze beautifully..Nice rewarmed ..15 secs in the microwave also..
Delicious w/ wine and cheese.

I got this recipe from a book I'll share w/ you in a little bit~ W/ a different version of these..

  21. Bonjour Monique, un autre cake que je prend en note. Je ne cuisine pas souvent les courges pour le salée, donc une bonne façon de l'intégrer au menu.

    Passe une belle journée et je te souhaite une belle Année 2011.

    Grosse bises.

  22. I love such savory cakes! A perfect appetizer item.

    Happy New Year!
