Whip up a delicious Pistachio Cake with me today!


• 1 ½ cups shelled pistachios
• 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
• 1 ½ tsp baking powder
• ½ tsp salt
• 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
• 4 large eggs
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• ½ cup whole milk

For the Pistachio Buttercream Frosting:

• 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup pistachio paste (homemade or store-bought)


. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease two 8-inch round cake pans.
. In a food processor, pulse the pistachios until finely ground. Combine them with the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
. In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the dry mixture. Mix until just combined.
. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans and smooth the tops.
. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
. For the frosting, beat the softened butter until creamy, then add powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Finally, blend in the pistachio paste.
. Frost the cooled cakes and enjoy!


Don’t forget to garnish with extra crushed pistachios for that extra crunch!
