This cleverly designed cake by foodie bloggers The Crumbs Sisters has the yummy and original touch of being infused with deliciously crunchy Lizi's Passionfruit & Pistachio Granola.
The best thing is, it looks harder than it is. Go on - give it a try. (And save us a slice!)
- 250g butter - room temperature
- 250g sugar
- 100g pistachios, roasted but not salted
- 100g ground almonds
- 200g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt
- 3 eggs
- Juice and zest of an orange
- Passionfruit Icing
- 50g butter - room temperature
- 150g cream cheese
- 75g icing sugar
- 1 passion fruit (or passion fruit curd)
- 1 tbsp Lizi's Passionfruit & Pistachio Granola
Method1 Butter and line a 20cm cake tin. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/160 fan.
2 Give the butter and sugar a really good mix with a handheld blender or a standalone mixer (if you've got one, lucky thing!).
3 After about three minutes of whizzing, add pistachios, almonds, flour, baking powder and the yoghurt. Give it a good beating, till everything is well mixed. Then add the eggs, one at a time.
4 Pour the batter into the lined cake tin and put in the oven for around 50 minutes, until a skewer comes out of the cake clean.
Leave to cool and make the icing.
5 With an electric whisk cream the butter until it is pale. Add the cream cheese, whisk some more and then whisk in the icing sugar.
6 Cut the passion fruit in half, and sieve the juice into the icing. You could put the seeds in too, but for something a bit simpler-looking, just the juice will do (or a tablespoon of passionfruit curd) Stir and then, using a knife, spread the icing on to the cake.
7 Crumble the granola over the top for a yummy crunch.
