Pistachio cake for easter baked with olive oil


Whether as a dessert for Easter lunch or at an Easter brunch buffet, this cake is not only a magical eye-catcher, but also tastes delicious. The nutty flavour of the Greek pistachios in the cake in liaison with the topping of whipped cream and cream cheese makes hearts beat faster. The cake was prepared with MANI extra virgin olive oil, which makes the dough even fluffier. A must try for Easter!
