arayeche, larayeche with pistachios, Algerian cake

Hello everyone,

it is the feast of aid el kebir which is fast approaching, and despite that it is the feast of the sheep, as they say, some families try to prepare cakes for this magnificent occasion.

Algerian cakes are always present on these occasions, and for my part, I did not want to do great things, just dry cakes that my husband likes, but my daughter asked me for the arayeches, she calls them Purple cake, or the purple cakes, because during the feast of aid after Ramadan, I had made them in purple.

and I’m going to be very frank again, well, she ate all the pretty pieces, and she said: my cakes, so nobody touches them, I was taking pictures for you, and she didn’t like it when I bit into them. one of the pieces, hihihiihih

so as I already have arayeches on my blog: the arayeches with almonds, the arayeches with honey, the arayeches with coconut, this time, it’s the arayeches with pistachio, and the taste was sublime.
