Tomato pie from the Tami Pan

Tomato pie from the Tami Pan

Characteristic of Japanese cuisine is not only cooking but also baking with cast iron cookware. In Japan, there are a variety of dishes and baked goods prepared in cast iron pans and baking molds. Due to their long-lasting heat conductivity and their ability to ensure even heat distribution, they are highly valued by both amateur and professional bakers. Similar to regular baking pans made of materials like aluminum, it's important to thoroughly grease the cast iron pan before use to prevent the baked goods from sticking to the pan.

Creative creations such as tomato cake can be found in Japanese baking books. The tomato-colored cake looks delicious and can be enjoyed either hot or slightly cooled in the summer. The fruity, refreshing tomato cake is especially popular with children as an appetizer or side dish.

Making tomato pie
List of ingredients
1 egg
30ml milk
150g flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
40g sugar
1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Step 1

First, soak the 500g of tomatoes in hot water to remove the skin. Then chop the tomatoes, place in a pan with the sugar and lemon juice and heat up. Reduce while stirring until the mixture thickens. Avoid burning at all costs. The tomato jam can now be placed in a sterile jar and stored in the fridge if required.

Step 2

Put the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and mix everything together well. In another bowl, add the eggs, milk, water, sugar and tomato jam and mix well until you have a smooth batter. In the meantime, you can preheat the oven to 160 degrees.

Step 3

Pour the smooth batter into the inside of the buttered Tami Pan and place the cast iron pan in the preheated oven.

Step 4

Bake in the oven at approx. 160 degrees top/bottom heat for about 20 minutes. Don't forget to put the iron lid on during the baking process.

Step 5

Caution: New ovens are often more powerful than old ones. Always keep an eye on the cake when baking with cast iron baking tins for the first time. The number of minutes may vary slightly.

Step 6

There is a simple trick to determine whether the tomato pie is fully baked. If the dough does not stick when you insert a bamboo skewer, it is ready. Then turn the pan with the iron lid on and gently shake it up and down to loosen and remove the cake from the cast iron pan. Make sure you wear heat-resistant gloves and mittens and take care not to burn yourself.

Step 7

Tip: You can drizzle the fresh tomato tart with a few drops of olive oil and serve with fresh basil, sun-dried tomatoes and a little feta cheese. Enjoy your meal!
