Cherry and Pistachio Loaf Cake

So after stating in last weeks post that I was going to try and do something a little more adventurous this week, I bottled in and, instead, have opted for this cherry and pistachio loaf.

My mum really doesn’t like the flavour of almond (explaining why I have only just gotten round to making the Matcha Macarons as well) so every attempt in the past to make them has ultimately failed. However, instead of letting her be a complete party pooper I decided to have an experiment with them instead. Continue reading “Pistachio and Lemon Bakewell Tarts”
