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.
- 3 eggs
- 100 ml milk
- 180 g flour
- 1 Tbsp of baking powder for salted tarts
- 100 g of gruyère cheese quite minced
- 200 g feta cheese
- 150 ml of vegetable oil
- fresh basil leaves
- 3 large handfuls of fresh raw spinach
- Cover a 9.4x3.9in/24x10cm plumcake pan with parchment paper.
- Wash and roughly chop the spinach.
- In a bowl lightly beat the eggs and add milk, oil, salt and pepper.
- Then add flour and baking powder.
- When the mixture is well combined add the feta cheese, scrumbling it with your fingers, the gruyère cheese, the spinach and the basil leaves.
- Pour the mixture into the pan and let it rest for 20 minutes.
- Turn on the oven 356°F/180°C and bake the spinach cake for 45-50 minutes.
- Serve at room temperature.
- Buon appetito!

Any chance you could give this recipe in cups, ounces, and teaspoons for us Americans?
Sure Julie, I will :-)!
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.
Sorry about the repeat but I would also like if you would post in cups stc. Thanks.
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…
Thank you so much for your responses. I can’t wait to make this !
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
THANK YOU :-)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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. ?
Hummm…I really don’t know as I’ve never tried it without cheese – which is one of the main ingredients.
Just about to make it, looks yummy. Will it freeze, do you think???
I think it “reacts” well to freezing 😉
