Leek and Pancetta Cake Salé

A tasty savoury French cake I made with leeks and bacon this time.

Recipe By: Deepseafish (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/269)
Serves 4 Prep: 20 min Cook: 35 min

Ingredients

Butter 80g
Leeks 250-300g
Pancetta or bacon 50g
Self raising flour 150g
Milk 100ml
Eggs (large) 3
Salt & pepper for the leeks 1 pinch
Honey 1 tbsp
Salt 4-5g
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.
7
Pour into a lined baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
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.
