As soon as I saw this Rosewater Pistachio cake recipe appear on Masterchef I had to try it. This beautiful middle eastern cake came from the famed international chef, Yotam Ottolenghi. I love his recipes because they are absolutely packed with flavour, and this rosewater pistachio cake is no exception.
Finely crushed pistachio nuts are mixed in with aromatic cardamom spice, Rosewater and lemon. Even more Rosewater and lemon are infused into the cake via a thorough drenching with warm syrup. A yoghurt and rosewater cream complements a slice of this cake perfectly.
