Lime and Pistachio Cake

Continuing the lime theme, here’s a light refreshing cake. See Key Lime Tart and Lime Ginger Steamed Pudding . The pistachio adds a bit of texture and nuttiness to this tangy cake. It would be nice served with a little frosting. This recipe is taken from

125g butter, softened
180g caster sugar
220g self raising flour, sifted
1tsp vanilla essence
3 eggs
125ml lime juice
zest of 1 lime
100g unsalted pistachio, roasted and finely chopped

1.          Preheat oven to 170°C.
2.          Cream butter and sugar.
3.          Add in vanilla essence and eggs.
4.          Fold in flour, lime juice, zests and lastly the chopped pistachio.
5.          Bake for 30-35 mins in 170°C oven.
