In the food field, the word ‘traybake’ is often associated with a large amount of cake. Now, don’t be too surprised to hear that it can be used in other contexts too. There’s nothing like a traybake of cake; but the basic principle of whipping together a group of ingredients to produce something yummy can be applied to the savoury food field too. I’m not going to deny that a cake based traybake is my favourite. But, in second place is a winter vegetable traybake.
