Raspberry, Pistachio And Chocolate Cake



I am completely addicted to baking so I hope you are ready for another cake!

This is another simple but delicious cake that I often bake at work. The original recipe I found in one of my many Vogue Entertaining Cookbooks asks for pear but I have taken the liberty to replace it with raspberries as berries do  have a more popular appeal.

You may dust the cake with icing sugar but you will be surprised how a little decorating work can transform an otherwise ordinary looking cake.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, happy cooking and baking!



makes 1 loaf
preheat oven to 180 C (conventional) 150 C (fan force)
a lined 22 cm x 11.5 cm loaf tin
you'll need;
225 g of plain flour
1.5 tsp of baking powder
225 g of caster sugar
a pinch of salt
225 g of unsalted butter, soften
4 eggs
300g of dark chocolate buttons, roughly chopped
1.5 cups of frozen raspberries
1 cup of pistachio nuts
zest of 2 oranges

for the decoration;
2 cups of icing sugar mixture
2 tbs of orange juice
1/4 cups of pistachio, chopped



Put flour, baking powder, caster sugar, salt, soften butter and eggs in the bowl of a mixer and process until just combined. (~ 1 minute, do not over-process)



Fold in the chocolate, raspberries, pistachio nuts and orange zest until evenly distributed.



Transfer the mixture into a lined loaf tin and bake in the oven for about 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre withdraws clean. Allow to cool in the tin before turning out to a wire rack to cool.



Prepare the icing by mixing the icing sugar mixture with orange juice until sugar dissolved and it is spreadable. Spread the icing over the cooled cake.



Sprinkle with chopped pistachio nuts and allow the icing to set before serving.

  2. turn the handle: Good LED taps handle in the rotation, there is no switch over between the Shower Taps and the gap opened and closed easily unrestricted, non-skid. Not only can poor quality Antique Basin Taps gap, blocked feeling too great.

  19. Did you know there's a 12 word phrase you can say to your partner... that will induce intense feelings of love and instinctual attractiveness to you deep inside his heart?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that triggers a man's instinct to love, adore and care for you with all his heart...

    =====> 12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Desire Impulse

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's genetics that it will drive him to work better than ever before to to be the best lover he can be.

    Matter-of-fact, fueling this mighty instinct is absolutely important to achieving the best possible relationship with your man that the second you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You'll soon find him expose his soul and heart to you in a way he never expressed before and he will identify you as the only woman in the galaxy who has ever truly tempted him.
