Milk Kefir

A hearty leek cake with milk kefir – eat cake without sin – to bake a special kind of cake with and without Thermomix

Dear milk kefir – fans,

for those who like to eat cakes, today we have a delicious recipe for a hearty leek cake, which you can either serve as a starter or as a main course. I prepared this recipe with my Thermomix. It’s also easy to cook this recipe without this multifunction kitchen homeappliance. In Germany leek has also different names like “Porree” or “Lauch”. Although leek are often found in our kitchens, for example, in stews or stir-fries, they are rarely in the spotlight. Even alone as a side dish leek is versatile. For example, it can be grilled in the oven, deep-fried or even eaten raw.

Today we have considered a twofold beauty program for the leek: first it is steamed and then baked.

For this delicious – hearty milk kefir-leek-recipe you need the following:

For the cake base:

For the cake topping:

Useful accessories:

  • Springform ø 26 cm
