Savory Chives Cakes
500g chives, finely chopped
2 tablespoon all purpose flour
5 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup raisin
1/4 cup sunflower seed or walnut (coarsely chopped)
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon baking powder
Salt and pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix the beaten eggs, turmeric, salt, pepper, flour, raisin and sunflower seeds. Add the wet ingredients to the chives and stir until just combined.
2. Grease the non-stick muffin cups with vegetable oil using a brush. Divide the batter among muffin cups and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, until cooked and firm.
3. Let them sit for a while to cool a little down and serve them in individual plate or a large platter.
This is a perfect appetizer that can be served with goat cheese and bread on the side. TzatZziki sauce is also a perfect mate for chives cake.
This is an original recipe that I created and tested many times in my kitchen. I always keep leftovers for my husband and son who come home hungry and look for a ready-to-eat yummy thing. Just remember, if you do not have non-stick muffin cups, use muffin papers for easy removal and serving. Enjoy
