Coronavirus cooking: Simple canned tuna cake recipe

A really easy recipe that can help you use up some of your canned tuna

1y ago

We all probably bought a lot of food these past two days and our pantry is full of cans right now. But let's be honest, canned food is not the most appetizing meal by itself, that's why I bring you this recipe my family has been making for decades now.

Clarkson, take note...

Tuna Cake

Something delicious to do with those cans of tuna.

Prep time5min


  • 3 cans of tuna
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • Milk
  • Garlic
  • Parsley
  • Spices


Important notes

  1. Remember, this is a survival recipe, you can use any canned fish you like.
  2. My grandfather use to make this with tomato sauce too.
  3. You can change the amount of eggs, or cans, or bread to fit your needs.
  4. When my grandma was young and there were no supermarkets near, they used leftover bread from the day before, so you can use any bread you have.
  5. We normally eat this with mayo and boiled potatoes.


  1. We take 4 slices of bread and put them in a bowl.
  2. We add milk, until the bread is completely soaked in it.
  3. We add garlic, (sliced, powdered...)
  4. We add pepper and parsley, and we add spices. Any spices you like.
  5. We mash all of this with a fork and try to mix it a little bit.
  6. We add everything to a blender, and we also add the canned tuna and the eggs. We blend it all together.


  1. We put this in a mould. If you don't have one, you can use a biscuit tin. (that's actually how I made this one in the pic)
  2. We cook it at 180潞 C for 20-30 mins. You can check it's cooked by sticking a knife in and seeing if it comes out clean, just like a cake.
