Okay, folks, here’s the Cake.  Or it might be a crustless quiche loaf—we’ll find out Monday when we cut into it. 

It is the cake pictured on the front of the book (and shown in FG’s post above).  Thus, sadly, I’m suspecting it will be more like the crustless quiche loaf, as it’s about the height the original batter was in the pan.  It rose during baking, but lost height upon cooling, which is generally expected, but one hopes it’s still taller than the original batter.  Only monday will tell if there is any sort of crumb!  I can tell you what there is in there:  a small fortune of ham, cheese and green olives!  So, as Uncle Martin on “My Favorite Martian” would say— keep your fingers spread that it’s at least tasty, whatever the texture!!

It looks great. I see nothing wrong with the height.  I can’t wait for the verdict on Monday. I’m sure you will get nothing but raves.

My husband would love this. It would be a great lunch for him to take to work.

I found the recipe on line and have got to try it.

The cake came out, and it is delicious!  I translated the recipe from French, but I made some minor modifications to both ingredients and method, so I’m happy to post if anyone’s interested.  Everyone was just crazy about it. This had ham, gruyere and green olives, but it looks like you can use about 12 oz of anything, being sure to include from 3 to 6 oz cheese.

You did a fantastic job!  If you want to post the recipe, I’d definitely make it for my husband.
