Pigs' ear cake

Pigs' ear cake


1. Preheat the oven to 170C/gas 3. Heat a large pan of salted water until boiling. Add the pigs’ ears and simmer for 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove with a slotted spoon and leave to cool.

2. Mix the baking powder with the flour, parmesan, olive oil and salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, in a bowl.

3. Cut the pigs’ ears into strips and add to the flour mixture. Sprinkle over the parsley, and stir in the butter and eggs. Tip the mixture into a cake tin. Cook the cake for about 25-30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

5. Once cooled, slice the cake. Heat a large knob of butter in a pan, add slices of the cake to the pan and fry until golden-brown.

6. Serve the cake slices with a green salad with mustard dressing.
