Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 and 2/3 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 cup ground pistachios
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 and ½ cups sour cream
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pistachio essence
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Crumble Topping:

  • 1 cup ground pistachios
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 and ⅓ cups gluten-free flour blend
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

Optional Glaze:

  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • Chopped pistachios for garnish

Baking Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Ready an 8×8 inch or a 9-inch round baking pan with at least 2-inch sides by coating it with non-stick baking spray.
  2. Begin the cake batter by creaming together sugar and butter in a bowl until fluffy, approximately 3 minutes. Introduce eggs, sour cream, and both extracts, mixing well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl periodically.
  3. In a separate container, combine the dry ingredients. Gradually merge these into the wet mixture, stirring until just blended.
  4. For the crumble topping, combine pistachio flour, sugar, gluten-free flour, and butter in a bowl, working them together until they form small clumps.
  5. Transfer the cake batter to the prepared pan, evenly scattering the crumbly topping over it.
  6. Bake the cake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, cool the cake, and if desired, finish with a simple glaze made from icing sugar and milk, drizzled over the cake and garnished with chopped pistachios.
