Recipe - Serves 6 | Preparation time: 15 min. | Cooking time: 40 min.

1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

2. Beat the eggs in a bowl with salt, pepper and sugar until the mixture doubles in volume.

3. Add the thyme, rosemary, cream and oil. Sift in the flour and the baking powder.

4. Add the olives to the mixture, stirring with a spatula.

5. Pour the mixture into a 10 x 20 cm non-stick cake tin and place in the oven. Leave to cook for 35-40 minutes, until the cake has risen and turned a golden color. Leave to rest for 5 minutes, then turn it out and leave to cool on a cake rack before serving.

It can be eaten as is, for the aperitif, or to replace bread alongside a tomato salad or a green salad, cold cuts, or cheese…
