This Persian Love Cake is full of surprises.
How can a cake with so few ingredients taste so fantastic? And how can a cake that tastes so amazing be so super easy to make?
The name alone conjures up images of exotic lands, pashas and harems. And one taste and you’ll be swept away to somewhere wonderful.
This Persian cake has a beautiful moist texture. It’s a ground almond cake packed full of nutmeg goodness. Serve topped with bright green pistachios and thick creamy Greek yoghurt and you’ll certainly be loved for making it.
Gluten free too if that’s an issue for you.
Proves that love IS all you need. And cake. This cake.
