Serves 4 Prep: 20 min Cook: 35 min

Ingredients

Butter 80g
Leeks 250-300g

Milk 100ml
Eggs (large) 3
Salt & pepper for the leeks 1 pinch
Honey 1 tbsp

Pepper a little

Method

1
Preheat the oven 180C.
2
Fry the roughly chopped leeks and pancetta in a large frying pan with 1 tsp butter for 3 minutes on high heat.
3
Add the milk and cook for a further 2-3 minutes to reduce. Season lightly with salt & pepper. When it's reduced, turn the heat off and allow to cool.
4
Put the butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.
5
Add the eggs and mix well. Add Step 3 and mix well.
6
Sift the flour and lightly fold with a spatula. Don't over mix or it will be too solid.

8
Keep aside for 20-30 minutes before slicing and serving alongside your main dish, while it's still warm.

Tips & Note

This is a rather salty savoury cake. In France, it's served as part of the hot main meal.
