Molly Wizenberg calls it the ideal afternoon cake, but I’m not sure I trust myself not to eat this for breakfast, and for lunch. And, boldly going against the advice of nutritionists everywhere, for dinner too. I’d go as far as to say that it’s the ideal meal.
In response to a reader query on what she eats for lunch, Wizenberg chooses instead, naturally, to tell us about pistachio pound cake. (Her reasoning being that no one wants to read, or to wax poetic, about her repeated consumption of peanut butter sandwiches. Or, as she refers to it, the official midday meal of American first graders.)
In Orangette’s latest blog post, Molly writes charmingly, as she always does, about this cake - citrus-laced, perfectly dense, and studded with no shortage of pistachios. Because, in her words, there’s no such thing as too much pistachio. I’m pretty sure I agree.
