Mother's Day and an Orange, Honey and Tahini Cake with Pistachios
Tuesday May 15, 2012
When I saw this recipe, my immediate reaction was YES lets do it. Tahini? In a cake? Sign me up. Where are my cake pans...
Happy belated Mother's Day! I love you mumsy!
I meant to post this ON Mother's Day, however by the time dinner was over, and we had dessert, I decided that I was much too lazy to edit photos let alone post a new recipe.
This was the perfect dessert for our family. Interesting flavour, light and not too sweet. It allows for the tahini to shine through. Although I would consider next time cutting the cake into 2 layers and putting some sort of filling between to add a bit more moisture - however I haven't decided what that filling would be just yet. I think I will definitely making this cake again.
This is definitely a cake that I don't see many people thinking immediately I HAVE TO MAKE THAT. However, the nutty flavour of the tahini mixed with the zesty orange and honey is definitely interesting and delicious. AND...super awesome that pretty much all the fat comes from tahini! Cool beans.
