Ken from the blog 'The Hungry Rabbit' put a creative and beautiful spin on a classic dessert with his Pistachio Baklava Cake. The popular sweet is prominent in Greek, Turkish and Lebanese cuisines. It is usually cooked in a pan and separated into squares or triangles. Ken stayed true to the taste of Baklava, using the traditional phyllo pastry, pistachios and orange scented syrup, but between the airy layers of phyllo there are two clever layer cakes that transform the texture and eating experience of baklava.
This cake is visually arresting. The layers of perfectly golden phyllo stacked one on top of the other gives the dessert a good deal of visual interest. The pistachio cake layers inject bright hues of jade green, which compliment the warm tones of the baklava. On top, a gentle scattering of crushed pistachios finishes the lush dessert off.
Crisp, chewy and flavorful, the Pistachio Baklava Cake boasts everything you love about baklava in a jaw-droppingly beautiful format.
