Pistachio Cake with Orange Segments

4.0
1 rating
This cake is greater than the sum of its parts. It's just a simple pistachio cake, lightly scented with orange zest. It has a tender, moist, nutty crumb flecked with subtle green from the ground pistachios. I serve it with a spoonful of orange segments for a perfect pairing. It's sublime — and it won't last one night. It's that good.
