Savoury cakes/loaves/quick breads really deserve to be more popular. Wouldn’t you love to have a slice of flavourful something that tastes like a mix between the most delicious gourmet sandwich and cake?
Add a cold glass of beer or some wine and I think I’d be in heaven. As much as I love cheese, I love carbs even more and savoury cake is my absolutely favourite appetizer!
Different kinds of Savoury Cakes
I make various savoury cakes often. I wrote about my Blue cheese, pear and walnut cake recipe many moons ago.
I posted Blue Cheese, Pecans and Dates Bread relative recently.
I also love savoury muffins, like these Savoury Herbs and Cheese Muffins.

Here’s a delicious roundup of 16 delicious Budget-Friendly Smoked Salmon Recipes.
How to make Smoked Salmon and Dill Savoury Cake
This recipe, like many other that I have on the site, uses very little smoked salmon for maximum flavour. It is also a one-bowl recipe.
- Chop the dill and smoked salmon
- Grate the cheese
- In a large bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients
- Add the dry ingredients and lightly mix
- Add the chopped dill, smoked salmon, and grated cheese
- Pour into prepared baking pans and bake
How to enjoy Smoked Salmon and Dill Savoury Cake
I recommend this Smoked Salmon and Dill Savoury Cake with a glass of white wine.
It’ll also be perfect as part of a seafood platter when you are entertaining.
You can bake the loaf (or mini loaves like I did for the photos) a day before thus saving time and energy right before you have people over.
It’s great to serve alongside a seafood bisque.
How to store Smoked Salmon Savoury Cake
You can store this Savoury Cake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, although I recommend eating it within 3-5 days as the cake will get a bit dry the longer it sits.
And if you have any dill leftovers, check out my mind-blowing trick how to store herbs for many weeks.
