  • Salt according to taste (up to 1 tea spoon)
  • 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
  • half  bag of baking powder
  • 250 g of sour cream
  • 250 g of ham
  • 200 g of cheese
  • 300 g of mayonnaise
  • 4 pieces of boiled eggs
  • 5 pieces of pickled gherkins
  • Optionally, 1-2 sticks of boiled carrot for decoration




  1. At first, warm the oven, mix 6 eggs, flour, salt, oil and baking powder, pour and spread this mixture into a square casserole, put the casserole into the oven  and bake the crust.
  2. When the crust baking was done, leave it to cool off for a while and then, cut it lengthwise to 3 approximately equal strips.
  3. Meanwhile, make 3 different mixtures (fills) into the 3 separate vessels.
  4. The first filling make by mixing 100 g of mayonnaise, 80 g of sour cream, 250 g of finely chopped ham and 3 pickled gherkins cut to very small pieces (almost grated).
  5. The second filling make by mixing 100 g of mayonnaise, 80 g of sour cream, 150 g of grated cheese and 3 pieces of grated boiled eggs.
  6. The third (outer) filling make by mixing 100 g of mayonnaise, 80-90 g of sour cream.
  7. The first filling (mayonnaise, finely chopped ham, and small cuts of pickled gherkins) smear and spread over the first (lower) crust strip.
  8. Put the second crust strip over the first filling, smear and spread the second (middle) filling layer (mayonnaise and sprinkle with 150g grated cheese and 3 pieces of grated eggs).
  9. The third crust strip goes on the top, which should be coated (the top and all sides) with the third filling mixture (mayonnaise and sour cream), sprinkled and decorated with 50g of finely grated cheese and 1 grated boiled egg.
  10. As an option, it could be garnished with 1 shredded pickled cucumber and decorated with flower shapes of boiled carrot.
  11. An exceptionally tasty appetizer, as it is mostly served before the main meal. Although the appetizers take the appetite’s inspiring role for the main meal, an experience tells that this kind of cake disappears from the served table, the first, forgetting the main meal which follows. Extraordinary delicious recipe, served in many occasions like birthdays, weddings, solemn celebrations, Christmas, Easter etc. Our best recommendations. Enjoy!
