Raspberry and Strawberry Bundt Cake

Raspberry, Strawberry, Pistachio and Rose Flavoured Bundt Cake - Perfect for Mothers Day


I made this cake a few weeks ago for my mums birthday but it would be perfect to make this weekend for Mothers Day, it was amazingly moist, even a few days after it was made still tasted delicious and light. I was also soooo happy that for once my bundt cake came out of the tin, the secret being in the extra greasing and sprinkle of flour beforehand.


Visually stunning but also a great flavour profile, so go ahead and spoil your mums, grandmas, nans, aunties and loved ones this Mothers Day.
