The French love these delicious savoury cakes, they can be found in all supermarkets and good boulangeries. The texture is still very light and "cake" like, as these are not yeast risen cakes; however, the texture is also quite robust and firm, slightly "holey", making these savoury type cakes very easy to slice. You can just slice them and butter them for a snack or use the sliced cake for an unusual and alternative sandwich bread. Or, slice them and then cut into small cubes - then using cocktail sticks attach a chunk of your favourite cheese or spread the cubes with tapenade, cream cheese or your favourite savoury spread. Olives also make a great accompaniment. Please note, that these do NOT have the same texture as a normal sweet cake - as I mentioned before, the texture is holey, firm and amost like a sourdough bread. They freeze beautifully, both in loaves or in slices. Preparation time includes the "resting" time needed for the cake batter.
