Easy autumn savory cakes
Among the easiest autumn savory cakes to prepare surely to try the SPEUR TART WITH WALNUT PEARS AND GORGONZOLA, that I do with a homemade whole-grain pastry but that you can do using a normal puff pastry or brisèe pasta ready-made. Original and with a strong taste. Yet, the PUMPKIN PUFF AND HONEY: it is prepared with raw pumpkin, cut into thin slices, and it's completed with creamy stracchino, salted butter flavored with sage and a drizzle of honey.
The quiche, unparalleled gluttony
Quiche are savoury cakes of French origin, prepare with brisèe paste and an egg-based mixture, cream and cheese. The most classic is the QUICHE LORRAINE, testimony of the great peasant cuisine French: inside Groviera cheese and bacon for a rustic and intense taste. Is’ my favorite and you can also find it in VIDEO RECIPE. With the same method, you can prepare the SALTED MUSHROOM AND TALEGGIO CAKE: I used the wonderful porcini mushrooms and chanterelles (or chickens) fresh, but you can also use frozen mushrooms. The Tale, tasty and creamy, gives the extra twist to this rustic cake that tastes like autumn.
Yet, the QUICHE WITH POTATOES AND SCAMORZA will make your children happy: it's basically a potato omelet enriched with racy cheese and contained in a crispy shell. Delicious. When it's artichoke season, Don't miss the QUICHE WITH ARTICHOKES AND CHEESE, which enhances the unique taste of artichoke with Trentingrana (or Parmesan or Parmesan) and racy source.
Salted cakes with cottage cheese
Vegetable and ricotta fillings are the most loved by young and old, and they're also the quickest and easiest to prepare. Ricotta allows you to put fewer eggs in the dough, or even to prepare it without eggs, and still get a creamy compound, rich and tasty. The great classic is the recipe of the CAKE CHEESE SALT AND HERBS: the Italian tradition is full of savoury cakes stuffed with ricotta and various herbs, from spinach to mixed field herbs, from chicoria to chard. Exaggerate with Parmigiano Reggiano for a more decisive and delicious taste. Yet, the RUSTIC RICOTTA AND RADICCHIO CAKE has a delicate taste that enhances the equally delicate and bitter flavor on the end of the late radicchio of Treviso Igp. While the RUSTIC AND CHEESE CAKE ARTICHOKES is a must for those who love artichokes, that with ricotta and parmesan form an amazing pairing.
Different savoury cakes than usual
Among the most original and different autumn savory cakes as usual, absolutely to try the CAKE AND RUSTIC CAULIFLOWER STRACCHINO: prepares quickly and is so good that even those who don't like cauliflower will be won, because it's rich, creamy and delicate. Instead, it has yogurt in the filling and a crispy shell of whole brisée dough PIE IN BLACK CABBAGE, made with a vegetable that is now known to all for its many beneficial properties for the body. Finally, a very particular traditional Sardinian recipe, the PANADA SARDA ARTICHOKES: a dough made from lard and semod flour and a potato filling, artichokes and racy cheese. Simple but surprising.
Then, you've found the autumn savory cake that's for you? I hope you. Have a good day!
