For 9 Person(s)

For the Cake:

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1/4 cup packed basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 8 ounces prosciutto, cut into a 1/4 inch dice
  • 4 ounces mozzarella, shredded or cut into 1/2 inch cubes. (I used little Mozzarella pearls that I found in the supermarket cheese case)
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a tube pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another mixing bowl combine the eggs, oil, milk, salt and pepper. Whisk to combine and then add in the grated Parmigiano cheese and basil.
  4. Stir in the dry ingredients until they are just absorbed. Do not over mix.
  5. Fold in the meats and cheeses and top with the halved cherry tomatoes.
  6. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean. About 45-55 minutes.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then invert it onto a plate.

It was very dry even though very flavorful. Maybe needs more olive oil? - bgcola
