Persian Love Cake 14 Steps

  • Step 1

    Butter a 9-inch cake pan and cover the bottom with parchment pepper.

  • Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • Step 3

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter and sugar. Use the whisk attachment and whisk on high speed until light and fluffy.

  • Step 4

    Stop the mixer and crack the eggs into the bowl. Keep whisking for another 4-5 minutes or until everything is mixed well.

  • Step 5

    Sift the flour, almond flour, ground cardamom, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the mixer bowl.

  • Step 6

    Whisk for another 1-2 minutes or just enough that everything is mixed well together.

  • Step 7

    Add the orange zest, orange juice and rosewater. Whisk for another 1 minute.

  • Step 8

    Transfer the batter into the prepared cake pan. With a spatula, flatten the top evenly.

  • Step 9

    Bake the cake for 40-45 minutes or until the cake is golden brown and passes the toothpick test.

  • Step 10

    Take the cake out and let it cool down.

  • Step 11

    In the meantime, grab a medium bowl and add icing sugar and blood orange juice to it. Mix with a fork or whisk to form a smooth paste. Add more blood orange juice as needed to make it into a thick but dripping consistency.

  • Step 12

    Once the cake has cooled down, flip it onto the serving plate. Pour the glaze all over the cake.

  • Step 13

    Decorate it with crushed pistachios and dried rose petals.

  • Step 14

    Enjoy!
