Did you survive the Easter holidays? Honestly, I have eaten so much that I could have spend several days lying on my bed or couch without moving. Lying there spread-eagled and with stretchy leggings to make room for my newly developed belly. Even now, almost two weeks ago, the image of the Easter brunch makes me smile wanly. Nonetheless, I am craving pistachios. Yes! And I hope this paradisical apricot pistachio cake will stave off my hunger.
Doesn’t it look tempting? I am really proud and not just because of its look. I was able to withstand the temptation of eating all those pistachios beforehand. Okay, maybe a few of them did find their way straight into my mouth. But the biggest amount was used for the cake, I swear.
The pistachio flavoured cake is already a tasty and beautifulcake on its own. I didn’t want to present it that way, though, and therefore it needed a smooth and fruity garment. Since apricots go very well together with these gaudy green…hm…nuts(!?), I decided to coat it with a sweet and sour apricot buttercream and pureed apricots on top.
Is your mouth already watering? Well, I can’t wait anymore. I need a huge piece of it now. And I would really love to send one to you as well but it probably won’t survive the transportation or will be eaten by the deliveryman by the time it reaches you. Hence, you have to be content with the recipe of the apricot pistachio cake:
