Sicilian Pistachio Cake

My daughters almost have vacation once again and we have planned a short trip to Sicily. It's an island belonging to Italy, as most of you probably know from movies like The Godfather. And if you don't know these movies (there are three of them, actually) I would highly recommend them.
 It was on our list for quite some time. The last couple of years we planned trips in the direction of the equator in spring or fall, because summers are just too hot nowadays towards the south. In the summer we rent a house somewhere in the country we live in (The Netherlands, which is a bit more northern). Much better, temperature wise. 

Anyway, when it comes to vacation trips, I think a lot of fun comes from planning beforehand. Besides reading about nice places to visit (but what can beat the sight of Mount Etna, erupting this moment, now, as we speak!), I thought it would be nice to cook some local dishes. One of them is a pistachio cake.

I found the recipe here.

Take a look at Mount Etna! Can't wait to see this for real!


  1. Sounds delicious but the recipe is quite involved! My husband and I are Italian and he loves pistachio anything so I will have to try it. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love pistachios so I must try this. Sounds yummy.

  3. Wow Liz, I'm not sure if I would be brave enough to watch a real eruption, but it must be an amazing experience. Hope you enjoy your vacation
