Looking for a cake to pair with fresh fruit? Consider this, a light yet rich butter cake flavored with deep green pistachio flour and honey. Pistachio flour adds a mysterious aroma to the cake and a distinctive color with a hint of smokiness. Honey makes this cake especially moist. In France a rich cake baked in a loaf is referred to as a Gateau de Voyage, a travelling cake. We think you’ll want to make this one to take to friends.
We realize that it might not be practical for the home bakers among our readers to purchase pistachio flour for home use. Know that this recipe will be equally good when made with almond flour in place of the pistachio flour in the recipe. The color and flavor will change but not its deliciousness.
(We took inspiration for this recipe for one in a book by London chefs Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers, Italian Easy: Recipes from the London River Cafe.)
