The King Arthur Baking Company is to bakers what Jimmy Choo is to shoe lovers; aspirational and drool-worthy. They source top-quality flour for their supermarket line and the very best baking supplies for their online store. If you ever find yourself in Norwich, VT, their flagship store is like a baker’s mecca. You can find obscure flour blends, flavor extracts you didn’t know existed, and about a thousand different cookie cutters. They also have a cafe and cooking school which even the locals go to for lunch.
When perusing their website, I found this gorgeous cake developed by Pooja Makhijani. It has all of the perfect flavors and colors of spring when you are ready to lighten up and shed the heavy comfort food of winter. Pistachios and cardamom are a very complimentary pair and even the green color of the finished cake is rejuvenating. When I contacted Pooja and told her I loved her cake, she graciously allowed me to share the recipe on our site. The only change I made was to give it a simpler glaze using our Cardamom Infused Maple.
