  • 250 g sugar
  • 250 g butter
  • Juice and zest of 2 oranges
  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 4 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 55 g pistachios, ground
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
  • Zest of ½ lime

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 190°C.

Beat the sugar and butter together until pale and fluff y. Add the orange juice and zest, flour and beaten egg, a little at a time, and stir until combined.

Fold in the ground pistachios. Once the batter is fully incorporated, pour into a greased 22 cm round tin and bake for 40 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

Once cool, remove from the tin and transfer to a platter. Dust with icing sugar and scatter with the lime zest.

Cook’s note: Try ground hazelnuts instead of pistachios, if you prefer.
