Dough ingredients

  • 230 g plain flour
  • 100 g of butter

  • 3 tablespoons of lukewarm water
  • pinch of salt

  • 1 red onion
  • 3 tablespoons of chives

  • Sprinkle a pinch of salt into the flour, mix and add butter.
  • If the butter is solidified from the fridge, grate it into the flour using the coarse side of a grater.
  • Add the eggs and mix everything with your hands.
  • We will have a crumb, which we use spoons of lukewarm water to combine into a dough, which we wrap in cling film and put in the fridge to rest for at least an hour.
  • Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out.
  • Put it in a 27 cm diameter cake tin, pierce it with a fork in several places so that the dough does not puff up during baking.
  • For the same reason, we put a foil on it, on which we pour any raw (uncooked) legume or rice that we have on hand.
  • Pre-bake in the oven at 180 °C for about 10 minutes.

Filling procedure

  • Mix eggs with cream, beat.
  • Add ricotta, salt, pepper, chopped chives and mix everything well.
  • Wash the courgette and the onion and cut them both into rounds.
  • After the dough is pre-baked, we take it out, remove the foil with weight (legumes, rice) and do not turn off the oven, because we will use it immediately.
  • Pour the prepared ricotta filling onto the dough and then place the zucchini and onion slices.
  • Put it back in the oven and bake at the existing 180 °C for another 30 minutes.

  • 50 ml of milk
  • 1 egg and 1 egg white
  • 100 g strong cheese (gouda, cheddar, …)

Procedure for the dough

  • We work quickly, when the dough is roughly combined, we turn everything out onto a floured roll and knead for a while longer.
  • The dough should be a consistent ball.

Filling procedure

  • Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the onion and a sprig of rosemary, and sauté on medium heat for about 10 minutes.

  • We will leave the edges higher, because during baking the dough will burn a little and the edges will decrease a little bit, we will cut off the rest of the dough.
  • Pierce the dough with a fork and place a piece of baking paper on it, sprinkle a handful of dry beans on it as a weight and put it in the oven.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then remove the beans and baking paper and bake for another 5 minutes, until the surface is lightly golden.
  • Grate the cheese and set it aside. Beat eggs with milk and cream in a bowl, season well with salt and pepper.

There aren’t many restrictions on savory pie fillings. A number of common raw materials can be used. We can use different pieces of meat, sausages, cheeses and boiled or raw eggs.

However, since we want to have cakes mainly with vegetables, we will choose, for example, one of the fillings, where the vegetable base is broccoli, spinach, peppers, carrots, cabbage.

These were our savory pie recipes. If, on the other hand, you are in the mood for a sweet cake, try our lattice cake recipes.
