This recipe is quite easy if you have a kitchen robot (or ordinary mixer) able to do it for you but can be quite time consuming if you don't.

The cakes are very filling and tasty breakfast with lots of fats, proteins and carbs.

And as is it is with every tasty breakfast - not very healthy.

You may also use this recipe for a side dish, when cooking light meats, poultry, fish and others used for light dinner or lunch. They will add quite good flavor.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 6 small cakes


  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tbsp olive or sunflower oil
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 3 whole walnuts
  • 3 tbsp yogurt
  • 1-2 ounces white cottage cheese, salted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 olives, with pyrenes/kernels removed
  • 1 cup with any sauce you prefer for dipping
  • 1 baking form, either silicone or metal
  • 1 mixing bowl


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius (392 F). Break and clean the walnuts, de-kernel the olives.
  2. Break the eggs in a big bowl for mixing.
  3. Add all liquid ingredients and start mixing until smooth.
  4. Crush the cottage cheese and add it. Keep mixing until it is broken to small crumbs.
  5. Cut the olives to small dices and add them too.
  6. Add one tablespoon of baking powder and start adding the flour 1 tablespoon at a time. Keep mixing, so the flour does not form crumbs.
  7. Check the mix with a fork or spoon or just tilt the bowl a little. It needs to detach from the walls of the cup very easy. If it is sticky - add a bit more flour.
  8. Pour the mix in the baking forms evenly and decorate each cake with half walnut.
  9. Bake until the cakes form hard light-brown crust (but no more than 30 minutes).
  10. Serve in a wide dish with any sauce you like in the center:

      Thanks Randy, I will check them.

      The olives were ripe. Green will not complement the taste of cheese, because they are a bit sour.

      The dipping sauce was mayo with yogurt with a tablespoon of Lyutenitza on top.

      Lytenitza is a hot Bulgarian vegetable dip made with hot peppers and tomato.

      Something like chilli-ketchup, but not exactly.

      This is new to me and I will try them. I was wondering what type of dipping sauce is used in the photo. Another question, what type of olives are used - ripe or green? Publish more recipe hubs and maybe you might want to check out some of mine!

      Thelirycwriter, they are very tasty bread alternative, but they also can be eaten as a main dish, so it is up to you.

      It is very important to choose good baking powder (we call it baking soda), so the cakes grow twice in volume while baking.

      I have never heard of these before M0rd0r. It is well worth trying. My wife always enjoys new foods. Voted useful and awesome. I would have voted up, but I don't see a vote button on this new interface. Hopefully Hubpages will fix this.
