A buttery soft cake, packed with freshly ground pistachios and warming winter spices
Grease a loaf pan with butter and line it with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 160°C.
Cream together ground pistachios, butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla, almond extract and milk.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and the spices. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Place the mixture in the prepared loaf pan, smooth the top and bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Dust the cake with icing sugar before serving.
You could also coat the cake with a dark chocolate glaze.
