Eggless Pistachio Cream Pound Cake

I accidentally crossed Pistachio cream when we went last year to Sicily for our summer vacation, obviously i couldnt resist to grab few bottles of this cream. Back home, after sharing with friends and relatives, two bottles of those pistachio cream were sitting in my pantry. Hubby finished a bottle as spread for his breakfast over some grilled bread slices while the another bottle tempted me to try an eggless pound cake with. Without any hesitation, i baked this absolutely flavourful eggless pound cake with those pistachio cream. Actually this Sicilian pistachio cream is used as filling for cannoli, once mixed with smooth ricotta cheese, this cream makes excellent filling to fill a cannoli. However weather is not helping us much hence i couldnt think more than baking a cake with this pistachio cream than whipping some icecream with it.

Pistachio Cream Pound Cake

Pistachio cream is not Pistachio butter, and this cream is already sweetened, hence i used less sugar in this pound cake.Am running this week's running marathon with 'Pound Cake' as theme, hence am kick starting this week's blogging marathon with an eggless but a very rich Pound cake. Though this cake is completely eggless, you definitely wont miss the eggs here as the richness of the pistachio cream will definitely tickle your tastebuds. Excellent cake to enjoy thoroughly for your evening snacks or else for your breakfast as much as like me.
