Be transported to northern Italy with this Tuscan Pine Nut Cake. A gorgeous traditional Italian style cake that is beyond delicious.

The silky custard contrasts beautifully with the cake and those liqueur soaked raisins are utterly divine.

As a big fan of pine nuts, I always decorate the cake with extra lightly toasted pine nuts once it’s baked (dust with icing sugar first and then add the extra pine nuts).

The first time I made this cake for a family gathering, I spent the next day emailing everyone the recipe. Even the men who usually pass on eating cakes couldn’t resist. It was that good. I’m sure you’ll also be asked for recipe after you’ve shared this Tuscan Pine Nut Cake with your loved ones.
