A Unique Recipe For Bundt Cake with Pistachio & Moscato To Try Now

What does wine do in baking?

The function of wine in cooking is to intensify, enhance, and accent the flavor and aroma of food – not to mask the flavor of what you are cooking. So, in the case of our Pistachio and Moscato Bundt Cake the Moscato in the batter is noticeable upon the first bite, but it immediately fades and allows the flavor of pistachio to take the lead – leaving you with a flavor profile that is perfectly balanced on the palate.

How to serve Pistachio and Moscato Bundt Cake

While some cakes require icing or some kind of sweet drizzle before serving, this one does not. The pistachio pudding mix in the batter keeps the cake nice and moist for days without needing any help.

In the summer months, you can serve slices of this bundt cake with fresh stone fruit and citrus-like we did here. But berries would be a delicious accompaniment to a slice of cake too.

Various fresh and dried citrus wheels and wedges make for a stunning display.

Don’t skip on adding a few cut flowers like zinnias, marigolds, or basil blossoms. They make for a spectacular presentation.

What California wine pairs best with this Pistachio and Moscato Bundt Cake?

Since this recipe for bundt cake calls for Moscato in the batter, you can bet that it is a perfect wine pairing to serve with a slice.

What does Moscato taste like?

According to Discover California Wines, the name of this wine comes from the Italian name of the tangy, fruity Muscat grape -Moscato. Muscat comes in a range of styles, from medium-bodied and dry or off-dry, to sparkling, full-bodied, late-harvest, and deliciously sweet.

You can also pair this cake with an effervescent glass of sparkling rose or your favorite sparkling wine from California.
