Lemon Olive Oil Cake with Raspberries and Pistachios


 
I know olive oil cakes are ubiquitous these days, but here's another one to add to your repertoire, and it's a keeper.
My dad's wife Rose made this for me a while ago and I've been meaning to post it for a while.
She's a great baker, and my dad's a terrific cook, so every time I visit I can be assured of a wonderful meal, including a delicious dessert.
The red raspberries and green pistachios give this cake a particularly festive look.
You might want to remember this one for the Christmas holidays. But try it as fresh, local raspberries start appearing in the markets.

Lemon Cake with Raspberries and Pistachios
from Bon Appetit magazine


Ingredients
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  •  cups all-purpose flour
  •  teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large eggs
  •  cups plus 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon plus ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries (about 4 oz.)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped unsalted, raw pistachios


PREPARATION

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 9” diameter cake pan with nonstick spray. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. With mixer running, add vanilla and 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, then gradually add oil, mixing just until combined. Fold in lemon zest and dry ingredients.
  • Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top. Scatter berries over cake, then pistachios and 2 Tbsp. sugar. Bake cake until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, 45–55 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring remaining ¼ cup sugar and remaining ¼ cup lemon juice to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve sugar; let lemon syrup cool.
  • Transfer hot cake (still in pan) to a wire rack and immediately brush with lemon syrup (use all of it). Let cake cool completely in pan.
  • DO AHEAD: Cake can be made 2 days ahead. Store wrapped tightly at room temperature

I really want to make this, it looks and sounds so good!

I'll love making this while raspberries are in season! My son has many raspberry bushes in his backyard.

Desserts that have a rich combination of ingredients are what I love. I don't just like overly sweet desserts devoid of flavor. This has everything I crave. Thank you for sharing and I am anxious to make this. BTW -- if your suitcase seems excessively weighty when you go to Italy, ahem! I may have hidden inside it :-) ! Buona Giornata!!

My, but that is one gorgeous cake. I am wild about olive oil cakes. They are SO good, and I think of them as somewhat "guilt free." I've got to try this one.

Lemons, rapsberries and pistachios are three of my favorite things—this sounds like a winner!

One cannot have too many olive oil cake recipes. We have raspberry bushes and they will be giving us berries in about a month - and I do love pistachios. So forget Christmas - this is a definite late spring treat. And oh so pretty.
