When it comes to cooking, there’s always room for creativity and adaptation. The same can be said about this delicious Scd Gluten Free Daisy’s Savoury Parmesan Cake recipe. Here are some substitutions and variations that you can try to make the recipe your own:

– Almond Flour: In place of almond meal, you can also use hazelnut meal, coconut flour or a combination. Keep in mind that different types of flours will affect the texture and taste of the cake differently.

– Cheese: While parmesan cheese adds a delightful flavor to this recipe, you can experiment with other types of cheeses. Try cheddar, gouda or feta cheese to create a new taste sensation.

– Herbs: If lemon rosemary doesn’t appeal to your taste buds, try swapping in other herbs like basil, oregano or thyme. Fresh herbs work best but if you don’t have any on hand, dried herbs will also work.

– Additional Vegetables: If you’re looking to add some veggies into your diet, try adding in some cooked rice, cauliflower or spinach to the cake mixture. You could even create a savory chicken parmesan cake!

– Biscotti: Instead of making a cake, press the mixture in biscotti pans and bake for longer. These savoury biscotti are perfect for snacking or packing as a lunch time treat.
