Pistachio cake with raspberries
Cooking time300 min
Bright, fresh, aromatic and refreshing with a delicate filling. Very long wanted to learn how to work with food dyes. Finally, in this cake was such an opportunity, and unplanned. Although at first it seemed that green turned out really thermonuclear, in the context of the combination of green cakes, white cream and bright red raspberries looks very organic.
Dough. Sift the flour with the baking powder and gently mix into the dough.
Pistachios grind in a blender. Melt the butter and combine with the pistachio paste, mix well.
Beat eggs with sugar white.
Pour in the butter-pistachio mass and again beat.
I at this stage added to the dough food coloring to the mass had a more pronounced green color. BUT! To do it better in the end. Because after adding the flour and baking soda reaction occurred and a beautiful pistachio turned into a nuclear green. If you have a pistachio pasta is ready, it is better to use it, then the dye is not required.
Sift the flour with the baking powder and gently mix into the dough.
Pour the batter in with a parchment form (u00d8 20 cm), smooth. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 180u00b0C.
Ready cake cool and cut into 3 layers.
Filling. Raspberries wash and dry.
Cold creamy cheese combine with cream and icing sugar.
Beat with a mixer until smooth about 5 minutes. The cream will get thick enough to spread will not.
Collect the cake in the culinary ring. On the cake spread half of the cream with the spatula. Sprinkle half the raspberries and press into the cream. Cover with the second Korzh. spread the remaining cream and raspberries. Cover with the third layer. Put 1 hour in the refrigerator.
To combine soft butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar.
Beat with a mixer until smooth. If the cake has cooled, put the cream in the refrigerator. It needs to be tight, not spread.
The cake is removed from the rings, the cake top and sides to cover the cheese cream. Decorate the cake with pistachios and raspberries.
After my alignment was a little bit of cream.
I added in one portion of red dye, the other green.
And decorated the cake that way. On top put raspberries and mint.
