Strawberry and Pistachio Cake

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F). Grease and dust a round 20 cm cake pan with flour.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add half the sugar and all of the butter and start to beat.
  • Add the other half of the sugar in a blender along with the pistachios and beat until the pistachios are finely chopped but do not completely break down and turn to dust. Add the mixture to the mixer and continue beating until the new mixture becomes fluffy and the butter turns white.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, waiting for each egg to become completely incorporated into the mixture before adding the next. Add the yogurt and beat until all of the ingredients are completely combined and the mixture becomes smooth.
  • Remove mixer from stand and add the flour. Fold gently into mixture with a plastic spatula until completely combined.
  • Transfer the batter into the cake pan. Smooth the top with a spoon.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until you pierce the cake with a knife and it comes out clean. 30 minutes into baking time, cover cake with aluminum foil so that it doesn’t burn.
  • When ready, remove cake from oven. Allow it to cool for 15 minutes and turn over onto a serving platter.

For the frosting:

  • Beat the butter and caster sugar in a mixer or a food processor until it becomes fluffy. When the mixture starts to thicken, add 4-5 strawberries. Continue beating until the strawberries become pureed and the whole mixture turns pink in color.
  • Spread butter frosting over cake.
  • Beat any remaining pistachio nuts in a blender until they are coarsely chopped. Sprinkle over frosting.
  • Before serving, cut the remaining strawberries into slices and arrange them nicely over the pieces of cake.
