Savoury Cheese Squares
A very rich and very filling little snack or something to brunch on, these little darlings came from the home of my good friend Bundazasha..thanks bunda!
It was sooo cute, I just gotta try and make it...with a little amendment here and there
60g coarse sugar (original recipe calls for 75g)
1/4tsp pepper (I used black pepper)
100g rice flour
50g plain flour
150g butter (melted)
50ml coconut milk
50g cheese (grated - I used mozarella...u can use any kind)
1 tbsp finely chopped parsley - (I used chopped broccoli)
2-3 medium tomatoes - sliced horizontally
Preheat oven to 160-170 C. Grease a 10-inch square cake tin (I used my 8-inch square)and line with parchment paper. Spray with non-stick spray or just grease a little.
Arrange tomato slices on the bottom part of the pan. I used my 8-inch square pan, so I lined them with 9 slices of tomatoes (3 by 3). Set aside.
In a mixer, whisk the eggs and sugar till thick and doubles in volume.
Add in the rest of the ingredients one item at a time. Pour the mixture over the arranged tomatoes, taking care not to 'move' the tomatoes from their positions.
Bake in the oven for abt 20-30 mins, depending on yr oven. Check for doneness with a cake tester after 20 mins.
Place pan on a wire rack and once it's cool enough, invert over a cutting board. Cut into squares, with the tomatoes as the centre nucleus.Serve with a hot beverage.
