Layered Savory Muffin "Cake"

Layered Savory Muffin "Cake" ~ One giant Muffin stuffed with Bacon, Ham Cheeses and more ! #MuffinMix #SavoryPie

Looking for a different breakfast ?  And a different muffin ? Right, I have your back with this delicious Layered Savory Muffin "Cake"!

Obviously it is not a cake as such, but I think it looks like a cake for some reason, hence me calling this a cake and not something like a giant stuffed muffin.

By using a savory muffin mix, this saves a bit of time prepping as well. I had everything ready in the cake pan by the time the oven temperature was right.

Start by switching on the oven - quickly cook the Bacon, let it cool while you get the other ingredients ready and mixed.

Serve this Savory Muffin Cake as breakfast, brunch or dinner with some added salads on the side.


9 Portions


500g Savory Muffin Mix  {your favorite brand}
1 1/3 cup Milk
1/2 cup + 2 TB Vegetable Oil
2 Extra-Large Eggs
250g Bacon Bits, cooked
150g Deli Ham, chopped
1/3 cup Piquante Peppers, chopped
6 Spring Onions, chopped
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated
1 TB Dried Mixed Herbs
2 TB Fresh Parsley, chopped


1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - line a 20 x 20cm cake pan with baking paper.
2.) Place the Muffin Mix in a large mixing bowl - beat together the Milk, Oil and Eggs - stir into the Muffin Mix until well mixed.
3.) Pour half the batter into the prepared pan - scatter with the Bacon, Ham, Peppers, Spring Onions and half the Cheddar and half the Mozzarella Cheeses.
4.) Lightly mix the Dried Herbs with the Parsley and sprinkle over the dish.
5.) Top with the remaining half of the batter and end with sprinkling over the remaining Cheeses.
6.) Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean - remove from the oven, leave to rest 5 minutes before cutting.

This dish is equally delicious hot, at room temperature or cold.
