I made this delicious cake in mid-December. That weekend I was alone and I concocted a great programme for myself: a cake to go with tea, a good book to read, short walks here and there and swimming.
Okay, so back to what matters, the cake recipe. This delicious pistachio cake is scandalously easy to make - and it is to eat and cry for more. You can’t go wrong, honestly.
If you are a fan of pistachio cake like I am, you will adore this moist cake that has a good amount of ground pistachios in it. I have adjusted the quantity of ground almonds so that the cake is more pistachio than almond.
250g softened butter
200g caster sugar
4 eggs, beaten
70g ground almonds
150g ground pistachio nuts
50g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Grated zest of 2 lemons
1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth. Add the eggs, a little at a time, and beat until firmly incorporated.
3. Stir in the ground almonds and pistachios, the flour, the baking powder and the lemon zest.
4. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven. Leave to cool and unmould.
