Je suis toujours autant impressionnée par la qualité de tes photos !!!!!
Une superbe photo et un cake qui a vraiment l'air appétissant¨...
Oh my... Moi je l'ai le coup de foudre !! La recette + la photo et me voilà avec des envies d'escapade à Casablanca !
This is a spectacular use of apricots! I love the idea of combining them with pistachio cake, and yours looks absolutely gorgeous. The recipe's been bookmarked!
la photo est en elle même un appel au voyage et j'imagine à peine ce que doit être quand on plante ses dents dans une part de cake de cette nature!!
I just wanted to let you know that I followed this recipe and brought the pistachio cake to a weekly meeting, and before we got through our first order of business it was gone. I'm sure they'll be calling for a repeat next month, too!
hi fanny, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! in your expert and creative hands, of course, those lovely apricots couldn't have expected any less a fate!
Oh my goodness! That photo looks amazing! The pistachio sounds absolutely scrumptious as well, and what an inspired combo with the apricots too.
The cake really does look delicious, it's 9 o'clock in Holland, and this looks pretty good to have for my breakfast....yum yum yum(!)
But this isn't why i'm posting; I really love your blog and your pictures, and I plan to make my own blog petty soon - I have enough, ehum OK: too many, ideas and recipes but I have a lousy camera. - I want to buy a new one, but i have absolutely no clue which i'm supposed to buy...what kind of camera do you have??
C'est vraiment une très apétissante interprétation de la recette de base!!
Avec des abricots, je craque:)
Je VAIS l'essayer, merci merci merci
Et c'est ou la photo? c'est très beau ce fond bleuté...haa...les vacances...
Lovely cake...hope there was some leftovers for your Bastille Day fête!
I love apricots and this recipe is a great application for them! I haven't used orange blossom water before - does it have a strong essence? I saw it at my local market but haven't had a good enough reason to buy it - this recipe might be though! ;)
I have been looking for something to do with my pistachios, this looks like the perfect thing! Thanks fanny.
simply looks great! so cool over at France to hv a backyard where u can plant yr own fruits. In Singapore it's rather different to get fresh apricots. Except those canned ones.
Oh, c'est irrésistible !
Je vais l'essayer !
hi, can i use only olive oil instead of a mixture of two oils?
Merci Laudy et Rosa.
Framboise - c’est exactement ce que j’ai ressenti en découvranbt la photo dans le livre de Bill Granger.
Melissa - i do think that the apricots work really well with the pistachios.
Alhya - c’est divin et ça m’a emporté très loin dans mes souvenirs.
Zhonghuarising - thanx for dropping by and for all your nice comments. I can imagine they liked it, it’s been the same at home.
J - thank you so much for your kind words. I still keep in mind your gorgeous olive oil and sauternes cake though.
Helen - thanx thanx thanx.
Julia - I really encourage you to start foodblogging. It’s been such a great experience for me. As for the camera, I own a SLR. These are quite expensive but really worth the buy. Good cameras are Nikon D50 and D70 or like mine, Sony Cybershot DSCF828.
Ooishi - la photo c’est chez mon chéri. Au bord de la piscine...
David - thanx for dropping by. Sadly there was NO leftovers!!!
Geneve - orange blossom water isn’t really strong. Its flavour is quite unusual but here it’s really common. I am used to drink a mug of orange blossom water (1tsp) with hot water before going to bed and I love it. Anyway, I think it keeps well.
Jen - I think we were in the same situation then. Lots of pistachios and looking for something to use them!
Lavender cupcaker (sweet name by the way) - I reckon canned one would work well to because the recipe calls for roasted ones. And I think that canned apricots roast wonderfully.
Elodie - fonce, c’est trop bon!
Snowy - i’m sure using only olive oil would really add something to the cake and i’m considering doing this the next time i’ll make this cake. The only thing is that you have to look for lightly-flavoured olive oil or it’ll be overpowering.
hi! i just came across your blog when i was searching for a casablanca cake recipe, the cake that my mum used to make for a special occasion. but it seems that people, even in my home country, don't make it anymore, or it's just possible written under a different name. however, i'm very glad i've found yours. your cake looks delicious! cheers!
Bonjour Fanny. Est-ce que tu sais si je peux utilizer "orange blossom water" pour un medicament? J'ai entendu que c'est bonne si on est stresse. Quest que tu pense de cela? (Pardonnez mon mauvais francais.)
Hi Phyllis - si tu es stressée tu decrais aller chez le médecin. Mais tu peux mettre une cuillère à thé de orange blossom water dans de l'eau bouillante avec un peu de miel pour bien dormir.
