The theme for this month’s Cake Club was savouries due to the idea of everyone trying to be good in January after an indulgent Christmas. I joined cake club this time last year and there were some delicious savoury cakes as well as a few sweetish ones such as courgette cake. I do like my savoury but have a huge sweet tooth and therefore wanted to think about a sweet cake that could fit in with a savoury theme which hadn’t been done before.
It just so happened that the week before Cake Club I went for dinner at Ask and they had a new dessert option which was Pistachio and Olive Oil Cake. A huge lover of pistachios, especially pistachio ice cream, I was straight away curious to see what it would be like. Turns out I didn’t actually end up getting Pistachio Cake but at least I now had a cake to find a recipe for for Cake Club!
