Pistachio Teacakes


  • Prep time:5 minutes
  • Cook time:12-15 minutes


  • ½ cup finely ground unsalted pistachios
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp fine salt
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pistachio extract (optional)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • white buttercream frosting
  • fresh raspberries or gummy berries
  • powdered sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚ F degrees. Grease or line 8 cupcake tins and set aside.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, sift together the ground pistachios, flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, extracts and butter until combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir until blended.
  5. Evenly divide the mixture amongst the prepared cupcake tins.
  6. Bake until the top bounces back to touch, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from tin and let cool completely on a wire rack before frosting and decorating.
  7. Once cooled, top each cupcake with a dollop of buttercream frosting. Finish each with a candied berry and dust lightly with powdered sugar. Enjoy paired with a cup of Cherry Blossom tea.

Yield: 8 tea cakes

* Cherry Blossom pyramid tea infusers are available in the Hanami Petite Presentation Box, the Ruby Collection, Tea Forté Select and others. Cherry Blossom is also available in loose tea as a Loose Tea Canister.
