What is the best way to get pistachio cake?? A renowned baker back home that made my wedding cake makes the most delicious pistachio cake. And I'm pretty sure she doesn't use pudding.
I tried a WASC mix with adding pudding and a dram of LorAnn Pistachio flavoring and didn't care much for the sharpness from the flavoring.
What about pistachio paste?
you used the whole dram for like 6-8 cups of batter?--you only need like several drops of the lorann flavor-- i usually pour it into the lid and pour that into my mixture to taste--a whole dram is way too much--that's why it's too sharp--
but sure--pistachios is how you get the flavor--pistachio paste is not a bad idea--but i would revisit the pudding & lorann first if it was me--my taste buds are familiar with the pudding so that would work for me--when pastry chefs design new flavor combos they use a greater percentage of known flavors with a small percentage of the new--
best pistachio baking to you--
oo-ooh got a thought popping out--what about pistachio ice cream--
one box cake mix
one full pint melted ice cream (if it's short add milk or cream to get it to 16 oz.--except now the cake mixes are less so--whatever)
