Paelo Persian Love Cake


If you know me, you will know that I am kind of obsessed with Rose Water and Cardamon! I try and try to add it to as much as possible. A lot of the time it really does not work! Occasionally it does, this is one of the rare situations where it worked really well! i combined a few recipes to come up with this one as I could not fine a Paelo Persian Love cake online, so I hope you enjoy it! Only thing to be mindful of is this cake took AGES to cook, like 50 - 60 mins, I ended up cooking it on a low heat of 300 so it would not burn. Perhaps if I split the mixture into two tins it would cook a little faster. So this recipe is for the open hearted, risk takers in life, try it out see how it works for you! my one came out just great. Springy, sweet, delicious and so heart warming.

Dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups almond meal

  • 1 cup tapioca flour

  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons ground cardamon

  • 2 cups coconut sugar (you could use less if you want it less sweet)

Wet ingredients:

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups of almond milk

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinigar

  • zest and juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons of rose water

  • handful of pistachios (optional as they do sink to the bottom!)

Mix dry in a bowl, beat wet in a bowl, mix together, keep light and fluffy by hand whisking. Pour into baking tin and bake on 350 for 45 mins ish!…. until knife comes out clean. You could top this cake with a lovely syrup or honey and pistachio nuts. it would also be delicious with a rose water icing, we were too keen to eat it! :)
