Last weekend my friend and I cooked an Indian feast for 15 people. All I can say is: so much food. My friend was especially worried that we wouldn’t have enough to feed everyone, so on top of the coconut chai ice cream I made (basically just a frozen version of this with coconut milk instead of almond milk), I decided I would make some cardamom ginger brownies. On her way out the door though, she asked if I would make a pistachio cardamom cake with her one day. It’s one of her favourite treats. That sounded a lot more exciting to me than brownies so I quickly looked up a recipe, checked my pantry and got to work.
