Whether you’re looking for a dish that is hearty, savory, or healthy, there is a recipe here that will cure any cake craving. Ready to serve savory cake for supper? Here are the recipes to get you started.
Pepperoni Pizza Cake
After preparing Pillsbury’s recipe, you’ll never want to go back to plain old pizza again. Filled with layer after layer of flaky crust, pepperoni slices, and mozzarella cheese, this Pepperoni Pizza Cake is an absolutely divine dinner dish. It yields 6 servings. Once completely baked, cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove pizza cake from pan; brush crust with butter. Use a sharp knife to cut slices like you would a cake.
Savory Cauliflower Cake
Eating Well creates a dinner cake that is healthy, savory, and vegetarian friendly. The cauliflower in this dish ensures you’ll get plenty of nutrients — Prevention notes that the cruciferous veggie is packed with phosphorous, magnesium, iron, and folate. The recipe yields 8 servings.
Cheddar-Herb Monkey Bread
Good news — savory monkey bread is totally a thing! Instead of sugar and spice, we’re packing this with herbs, garlic, and a respectable amount of cheese. Whether you use store-bought dough or make your own from scratch, consider yourself warned: Sharp (cheddar) curves ahead. This bread is addictive. Handle with care.
Buttermilk Pull-Apart Rolls
Brushed with butter and sprinkled with sea salt, this slightly sweet old-fashioned pull-apart bread resembles Parker House rolls in texture. They are festive on a holiday table but easy enough to make any night of the week. The pans filled with unbaked rolls can be stored overnight in the fridge, too.
Mashed Potato Scones
These stovetop-cooked scones are buttery-crisp on the outside and creamy mashed potatoes on the inside. It’s like the most comforting dish at the dinner table went incognito at brunch. I’ve found that these scones are best made in a nonstick skillet or on a griddle pan coated well in fat to keep them from sticking. Serve warm with loads of sour cream and chives, fried eggs, and lots of coffee.
Cheesy Zucchini And Olive Bread
This isn’t your ordinary zucchini bread. It’s savory rather than sweet — a departure from typical breakfast bread, which in the opposite direction. Treat the dough like you do the kids on your very best day: with a gentle hand. Quick pieces of bread don’t like an aggressive baker, so stir the batter enough to make the ingredients come together but no more. The payoff will be a golden loaf with a tender crumb punctuated by nuggets of cheese and salty olives. Cut it into generous slices, and get it warm and crusty in the toaster.
So how about savory cakes? With not a shred of sugar? Cheese instead of chocolate, olives instead of oranges, maybe even some meat in the mix, too. You can easily prepare one of these savory cakes for the super supper family.
