Rose and pistachio cake

One of my favourite flavour combinations in a cake which I made last week on the most beautiful Autumn's Day. It was absolutely tasty! I love the light scent of rosewater in the nutty cake and how the addition of lime juice gives it a zesty lift. Mmm. Hmm.
Rose and pistachio cake

150g shelled pistachios
1 cup self raising flour, sifted
1 cup caster sugar
200g butter, softened
3 eggs, lightly beaten
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons rosewater

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease a round 22cm springform pan and line base with non-stick baking paper.

2. Grind pistachios in food processor until it resembles powder. Reserve 3 teaspoon for garnishing.

3. Place butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well to combine. Stir in lime juice, rosewater and eggs. Then add ground pistachios and flour and mix until combined.

4. Spoon into prepared cake tin, smooth the surface and bake for about 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool on cooling rack.

5. Sift icing sugar on the top of the cake and sprinkle the reserved ground pistachios over the top.

Wow Trishie! You can really cook and bake! The combination sounds super interesting, it would not have come across my mind that these two ingredients can come together and still taste good!

You captured the mood of the day PERFECTLY here, adore this post! I wish I can cook like you, sure looks yummy! I am sure that was a heavenly day.

I feel a person who can bake or cook well is truly a beautiful person as she lights up the heart (and tummy) of whoever is around her.

Your family and friends are blessed indeed!

Hope you are having a great week thus far! Thanks for dropping by LUMINNEJ previously and say hi.

Cheers,
Jeann
