Maple Pistachio Bundt

This cake was adapted from an Italian recipe I found in an Italian food magazine that I love. The recipes are so well-written that I can adapt them in a snap.

Makes 10-12 servings

Ingredient List: 

1/2 cup avocado or extra virgin olive oil

7 tablespoons Suzanne's Specialties Maple Rice Nectar

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1 1/4 cup spring or filtered water

2 1/3 cups sprouted whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

2/3 cup coarsely chopped pistachios


Step By Step Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 350oF and lightly oil a standard bundt pan (9 1/2 inches).

Whisk together oil, 3 tablespoons rice nectar, vanilla, coconut sugar and vanilla until creamy. Mix in flour, baking powder and baking soda and salt until a creamy batter forms. Do not over mix. Fold 1/2 cup pistachios into the batter. Spoon evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the cake springs back to the touch or a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes. Place a platter over the cake pan and invert so the cake drops gently onto the platter. Allow to cool completely. 

Make a glaze by heating remaining rice nectar until it boils. Spoon over the cake and sprinkle pistachios over the glaze so they stick to the glaze.
