Can't find anything like it online, can't stop thinking about it!
The fig and pistachio cake at the end of this Mimi T post is super easy to make, beautiful, and tasty http://mimithorisson.com/2016/08/02/2-recipes-from-my-new-cookbook/
Her walnut cake is also great! https://food52.com/recipes...
Thanks for the tip!
Because of course she did! Thank you! The one I had was an individual little cake, about muffin tin sized, with this sort of a topping on top. This might be a good place to start experimenting from. Thanks!
See this pistachio tart, which includes some brown sugar and corn syrup in its filling. Haven't made the recipe but it looks similar.
Thanks, this one looks fun!
Ok, this one is a lot of effort, but in my opinion, so worth it: Milk Bar Pistachio Cake
I listed 2 recipes because one is in metric and the other is in US-friendly volume (?).
A former co-worker made this, twice, and it was amazingly delicious each time. While not difficult, it is a cake that required multiple elements that you could make ahead. I can vouch that the final product is worth the effort. There are good reasons it is a best seller for Milkbar.
I've made this cake with pistachios instead of almonds, and it come out similar to your description (and is excellent): http://www.lottieanddoof...
