And that is how the finished product looked like and it definitely tasted yummy. The pistachios gave a nice nutty flavor, subtle and unusual but really yummm!!! My son just loved it.
140g caster sugar
140g butter, very soft
140g self-raising flour
5 tbsp milk
Icing Sugar and water (optional)
- Preheat oven to 160C.
- Grind the pistachios until very finely chopped in a food processor.
- Put the chopped pistachios into a large mixing bowl with the sugar, butter, eggs, flour and milk and beat until smooth.
- Divide between cases, then bake for 25 mins until a skewer poked in comes out clean. I used mini cupcake cases.
- Cool on a wire rack.
Note - For the icing (optional), mix just enough water into the icing sugar to get a very thick but still runny. icing. Put a spoonful of icing on each cake and let it gently spread to cover.
