Savoury birthday cake!!

It was my brother in laws birthday last week and he doesn't eat sweet food, so I made him a savoury birthday cake!

The cake was chickpea and chestnut bake, sandwiched together with homemade houmous, topped with houmous and olives and a red pepper heart! As he loved the bake at Christmas and his favourite food is black olives, I thought this would be the ideal combination and he enjoyed it too. Double the recipe for the cake version.

Slice of cake with salad anyone!!!

  1. what a brilliant idea, it looks great, and I'm sure it tasted it too!! Reminds me of a birthday cake I made for my daughter when she was about 8, which looked like a pizza, but was a sweet cake, with grated marzipan to resemble the cheese topping!

  2. I love this idea, so creative! I can't imagine anyone not liking cake as I have such a sweet tooth, but I wish I didn't sometimes.
