Quiche Lorriaine was first a custard base of few pieces of meat and poured into a hollowed out bread shell  Now the delicious Cheese-Bacon Quiche is poured into a pastry shell.  Some quiches have the meats, cheeses or vegetables on the bottom of the pastry shell with the egg custard poured on top. Quiches make a very good breakfast, brunch and small tart-like quiches make tasty appetizers or hors d/oeuvres.

Savory pastry shells can be made by adding  egg yolks or Parmesan cheese.  The pastry for this particular quiche was made with coconut oil.  Coconut oil does not have a flavor of coconut and the pastry is very flaky making it somewhat hard to handle getting into the pie plate.  The flakiness of the pie dough adds texture to the custard filling.

Cheese-Bacon Quiches served at a brunch could be made in to small pie like tarts, accompanied with bowls of fresh melon and mango and the Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake.   Lunchtime Cheese-Bacon Quiches would be enjoyed with a nice spring lettuce salad with oranges and pecans or tomatoes and green onions and walnuts.  Think quiche for that extra appetizer for your next dinner.

Many coffee cakes are made with a yeast batter.  The Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake uses baking powder and baking soda as the leavening agents.  It is an easy and quick ‘from scratch’ cake to make.  What is even better, the  coffee cake can be make a week ahead, wrap well and freeze.  Defrost in the wrapping overnight and warm for breakfast.

I have been leafing through my older cookbooks for old recipes I have used.  The Sour Cream Coffee Cake was first published in The Best of Food & Wine 1990 as an exclusive gift edition.  I made moderate adaptions by making a strudel instead of adding walnuts and chocolate.
