Why We Love It:

Our lovely and simplistic savory cake is incredibly easy to make and super delicious. In the colder days of the year we usually make it at least once a week.

Our household loves oatmeal – chewy oatmeal biscuits like this ones  (inspired by Amy’s healthy baking) in several variations or raw oatmeal bars (like these ones). The thing is however – most of my winter bakes are on the sweet side. So last year I thought it was about time I turn things around. Then one day, my husband came home from work and told me a colleague has made a super tasty oatmeal savory cake and brought to the office as a birthday treat. He loved it and requested I make similar version at home.

I started researching and experimenting and not long after this tasty and super easy recipe was brought to life. What I love about cooking with oats is they are super absorbent and modifiable. That means even if I accidentally add a bit more liquid (how does that even happen you ask – one word –> toddler) – no one will ever notice. The savory cake will turn as delicious as ever.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 14 squares

Ingredients

  • 300 g Greek Yogurt, plain
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 200 g oats, GF if needed
  • 200 g feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 50 g sliced bacon, optional
  • 1 tsp cumin powder, optional

Instructions

  • In a large bowl mix Greek yogurt and baking soda until well combined. If your yogurt bubbles up that's even a good thing - bake will become even fluffier. 
  • Add all remaining ingredients and mix until well combined. 
  • Place in baking pan of choice ( I usually use cake pan - ' 9 '- like this one by Amazon) but a regular non-stick pan will do as well.
  • Bake in preheated oven on 180 C/360F for about 15-20 min until golden on top / toothpick comes out clean. 
  • Cut in squares and enjoy with family & friends. 

Recipe Notes

 
VARIATIONS: You can add slices of bacon / salami / olive oils and even cumin powder to the mix to make it even more flavor-full (like in mine in the photos)
