This is Pistachio Pound Cake from March Basic Class!

In Japan, the cold Winter is about to finish and Spring season is coming soon. Japanese like to follow season in pastries, and this pistachio green color represents the young leaves in Spring!


The pistachio paste we use is from Sicily, Italy, and is one of the best pistachio paste in the world. We will spread some pistachio nuts and place dark pitted cherry inside. Pistachio and cherry is a great match, so even if some of you might not like cherry that much, you will find that the cherry compliments the pistachio pound cake^^.

We will bake this pound cake in “sugar-batter-method” and using spatula instead of hand-mixer or whisk!


It’s always exciting to see the cutting surface for marble cake or two-layer cakes. The top is a coating of icing sugar with pistachio paste and pistachio nuts, and this is an optional. We will bake this cake in 7″ (18cm) pound cake mold.

Another cake you learn is a cold dessert – Chilled Yogurt Cake. The bottom is a whole wheat cookie.

This is a very simple yet delicious cold dessert, and I’ve been cherishing this recipe for almost… 20 years! The picture is a slice of cake, but we will make this into a plastic cup and each of you will bring back 6 pieces of them.
