Summer Sandwich Cake
Day 26. Just 4 days left of my 30 day challenge.
It's Sunday and it's very hot, so friends are coming over to cool off in the swimming pool and I have prepared an easy Sunday poolside nibble to have with a beer!
In France you can buy these from a great frozen food shop called Picard but I thought I would make it myself but add something extra.
This is one of those recipes that seems more tricky but in truth, it was super simple!!
I made a loaf the day before and kept it wrapped in tin foil for today.
I made a seed loaf in a 17 cm tin, we have 7 adults & 3 children, so this will enough for early supper nibbles.
It doesn't really have a recipe as you can pick any fillings you want.
Salmon & cream cheese
Liver pate & gerkins
Egg mayonnaise & cucumber
and I decorated it with cream cheese, black pepper & chives.
Just slice the bread as thin as you can and fill each layer.
Then press down firm to keep it together.
Then neatly, or not so neatly in my case, use the cream cheese to spread on the outside. All you bakers will be expert at this, I went more for the rustic look to cover up my terrible cake decoration skills. I used some parchment paper under the cake to keep the plate clean. You can just remove this after for a clean line.
Slice like a cake
and sit in the shade with a cool drink and enjoy with friends! Voila!
