Leek Cake


  • 2 leeks
  • 1 onion
  • 150 grams of bacon
  • 1 apple
  • 3 eggs
  • 75 grams of grated gruyere cheese
  • 200 ml cream
  • nutmeg
  • pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
  2. Clean the leeks and cut the little ones, into small chunks.  Peel the onion and cut it in small chunks too. Finally peel and cut the apple into cubes. Leave the apple in a bowl with water and a few drops of lemon so that it does not blacken.
  3. Brown the bacon with a few drops of oil in the pan. Remove it and let it rest on absorbent kitchen paper.
  4. In this same pan fry the onion for a few minutes, adding a little oil if necessary, and when you see it transparent add the leek over low heat and poach it for a few more minutes. When the leek looks well poached it is time to add the well drained apple. Soak until everything looks tender and soft.
  5. In a large bowl beat the eggs with milk, cream and cheese.
  6. Add the leek and bacon and mix well. Salt and pepper. You can add a little nutmeg.
  7. Pour the mixture into a previously greased mold about 25 cm long.
  8. After you grease it put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to help the cake come out smoothly at the end.
  9. Put it in the oven and cook for about 30 minutes or until you see it well curdled. If you see that the surface browns too much you can cover it with aluminum foil.
