Savory cakes have always been one of my “fetishes”, from the first I’ve ever tried (from the hands of my Greek mother) to what I eat today in expensive restaurants (instead of bread and butter).

The idea of “loaf” that instead of vanilla and cocoa has cheese and peppers, is one of the most imaginative solutions for breakfast or as an accompaniment to a formal table. On a Sunday table I had used it to accompany a simple salad with tomatoes and cucumber, creating a “very” impressive dish.

In today’s recipe the grated Grana Padano gives the special flavor. In collaboration with Grana Padano we run super a tasty competition at Instagram for 5 lucky ones who want to win a gift box with the authentic Italian Grana Padano.
