I have a very important question to ask you, do you like cake? It is hard to believe, but there are some people out there who do not like cake.....weirdo's!
Well I love just about every type of cake there is. One cake I had never tried, but heard a lot about was the Persian Love Cake. I sampled some a few weeks ago and its distinctive taste had me hook, line and sinker.
After a quick google I found the recipe over here. I have added a splash of this and a sprinkle of that. The end result is a 'grown up' tasting cake.
Give it a go and let me know what you think.
3 cups almond meal
1 cup raw sugar
1 cup brown sugar
120 grams butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup greek yoghurt
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of rosewater
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped pistachios
|5. Pour over prepared base, smooth top, scatter pistachios and sprinkle some cinnamon around edge and bake until golden (30-35 minutes.)|
6. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack to room temperature, then serve with extra yoghurt. The cake will keep in an airtight container for up to a week.
