CACAO & COFFEE CAKE WITH PISTACHIO FROSTING

CACAO & COFFEE CAKE WITH PISTACHIO FROSTING

 

Charlotte White’s mother loves all things Italian so, when she developed this recipe, she brought a hint of this into the cake with espresso coffee and pistachio nuts.  Espresso works so beautifully with cacao, creating a new cake flavour which is neither coffee nor chocolate – but both at once – in perfect harmony.  It is rich and roasted with an added bite as the cacao nibs are baked into the sponge.  When baked, these nibs become something in between a chocolate chip and a nut.  Put simply, this cake is unlike anything that we’ve ever eaten before and we love it!
