Sundried Tomato Polenta Cake
Our 8th bake at The Home Bakers ( THB ), we are currently baking from the book, Coffee Cake by Lou Seibert Pappas. Just like some of the members in the group, this is also my first time baking a savoury cake. I'm not sure about your place but here where i live, it is something very unusual if we see bakeries selling savoury cakes. I do not want to miss this bake as i'm a little curious as how it's going to taste like. Last week, i already gone in to a few of the members' sites to check on their cakes and read that most of them like the cake very much. The cake is made up of a mixture of all purpose flour and some cornmeal, with sundried tomatoes , some dried herbs, pistachios ( which i didnt put in ) and parmesan cheese incorporated into the cake and a little sprinkling of cheese on the top.I always read the tips given by members who have baked the cake earlier and one suggestion made by Mich was to put in more cheese but i totally forgot about it. I find that my cake is not savoury enough, i really think by putting in more cheese will further enhance the taste of the cake but the taste isnt weird, just that i think i still prefer sweet cakes as compared to this one. I made half a the recipe in a 7 inch pie pan. For full recipe, hop over to Yvette's blog, the host for this bake.
