So when reading, especially Jane Austen, it is always nice to pair it with something. Of course tea:
But while on a literary adventure, it is always nice to have something to eat to sustain you in your “travels”.
So here is a delicious recipe borrowed from my sister blog MysteriousEats.wordpress.com
- 1/2 Cup of Pistachios
- 1/3 Cup of Flour
- 1 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Salt
- 2/3 Cup of Powdered Sugar, plus more for dusting
- 2 Large Eggs
- 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted
- 12-24 Medium Cherries with Stems
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
- Pulse the pistachios, flour, baking powder, and salt in a food processor or blender until finely grounded.
- Whisk the powdered sugar and eggs in a large bowl, then whisk in the pistachio mixture until just combined.
- Stir in the melted butter until just incorporated.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin cup.
- Bake until slightly puffed and just beginning to set, about 8 minutes.
- Place 1 or 2 cherries in the center of each cake and continue baking until the cakes feel springy and the edges are lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
- Transfer to a rack and let cool 10 minutes in the pan, then remove from pan to cool completely.
- Dust with powdered sugar.
Thoughts After Baking:
It did not come out well…
Fresh cherries are not in season, so I substituted with frozen.
I should not have done that…they made too much liquid…it just did not work…
I will keep my tea cakes, and as soon as fresh cherries are in season I will remake this and give you an update.
