A Super Easy Spinach Cake

A Super Easy Spinach Cake

This spinach cake is that kind of recipe that I am sure you will prepare more times.

It is extremely easy to do as you just have to put together all the ingredients in a bowl, mix until combined and then bake.

It is tasty and can be eaten at room temperature. So it can be prepared in advance and you can freeze it.

I prepared this spinach cake many times since I read this recipe in Arabafeliceincucina, a great blog with easy and tasty recipes such as the flour-dairy-free banana pancake and the zucchini cake among others.

This cake is prepared with feta cheese, an ingredient I am becoming always more addicted to. This salty Greek cheese is present in many of my favorite recipes, such as spanakopita and cheese tart, and it makes the difference in this spinach pie.

  • Can you tell me what groviera cheese is and what do you mean by quite minced? This sounds so good!

    • Groviera is gruyère cheese, sorry, I will fix it now ;-). Quite minced is an expression I have just invented :-D. It could be grated but this cheese is a little bit soft and sometimes difficult to grate, so I just cut it thinly, the closest I can to a grated aspect.
      Thanks Paulette

    • Yes Paulette, it is on my to-do list.
      The opposite would be much easier and quicker to do, but often the quantities don’t fit an entire cup measure (1/2, 1/3, 1/2 and 1). If a recipe is “born” with cups, it’s ok; but if it is in grams, it is a delicate task to convert it correctly to cups.
      Sorry for the delay…

  • Dry Goods
    Cups Grams Ounces
    1/4 cup 55 g 1.9 oz
    1/3 cup 73 g 2.58 oz
    1/2 cup 110 g 3.88 oz
    1 cup 220 g 7.75 oz

  • Hi, can we do it without the cheese at all. I’m trying to loose some weight but I would like to try this recipe. ?
