although they are plain, they are quite lovely.

pistachio almond cupcakes

pistachio almond cupcakes, because nuttiness and los angeles go hand in hand. i adapted a recipe for almond cake i found on david lebovitz's blog, which in turn is a recipe adapted from one used at chez panisse. i used a pistachio almond paste i bought at the ever fantastic surfas, and baked the cupcakes until just golden, about 35-40 minutes. just keep a close eye on the oven.

moist, surprisingly light, incredibly rich and delicious.
