  1. Mix the flour, eggs, dried yeast, olive oil and wine together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the olives, cooked lardons and cheese.
  3. Add a small amount of pepper, no salt!
  4. Put mixture into a loaf tin, or cake tin and cook for 45 minutes to an hour at 200 c.


Note to AH & AL

The cake can be a bit damp, make sure its cooked through, once cooled, slice it and it’ll dry out .
