Pistachio Rosewater Bundt Cake

Persian Love Cake, Rosewater cake, Pistachio rosewater cake, cake, Bundt cake, eggless, butter free cake LOVE everything pistachio, cardamom and rose water. My most most most favorite combination of all. I combined these beautiful ingredients in this Pistachio Rosewater Bundt Cake. Two weeks ago, I made a Persian Love Cake for a friend’s anniversary and including her, everyone at the party devoured the cake to the very last piece..I mean crumbs. I know I will be writing up a post soon on that.

This Pistachio Rosewater Bundt Cake keeps well for up to a week and don’t confuse rose water with rose essence: the difference is huge. You want to use rose water here which makes the cake both distinct and delicious.

Rose water has a lot to offer, especially when paired with pistachios and/or cardamom. Ayurveda is also really big on rose water. As it states here, a warm cup of milk blended with rose petal jam is a nice soothing bedtime drink that will help you sleep! Goes to show it’s not only tasty but there are medicinal qualities as well. Rose petals help recondition the nervous system, helping to alleviate insomnia, fatigue, and depression.

More Humble and more true to the taste. I made this Pistachio Rosewater Bundt Cake, because I was craving some tea cake and yes, lets not go to my cravings. I crave cake 7 days a weeks.

I made this cake egg free and butter free as well. Just because I love baking cakes with olive oil. And you ask whats wrong with eggs? Nothing really. But if I can get the same result without adding eggs, then why not, right? Don’t believe me…, try these other delicious bakes.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
