  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced (any variety you prefer)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a round cake pan with olive oil and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, sautéing until softened and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and start to brown, approximately 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Arrange a layer of thinly sliced potatoes on the bottom of the prepared cake pan, slightly overlapping each slice. Sprinkle half of the mushroom mixture evenly over the potatoes, followed by a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese.
  6. Repeat the layers with the remaining potatoes, mushrooms, and Parmesan cheese, finishing with a layer of potatoes on top.
  7. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the layered potatoes and mushrooms, ensuring it seeps through the layers.
  8. Cover the cake pan with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the eggs are set.
  9. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and crispy.
  10. Once done, remove the potato and mushroom cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes before carefully transferring it to a serving plate.
  11. Garnish with fresh herbs if desired, slice into wedges, and serve warm. Enjoy the savory goodness of this potato and mushroom cake as a delightful main course or side dish.
