Ingredients

  • 125g shelled pistachios
  • 250g soft unsalted butter
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 50g plain flour

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to a few days ahead and store in an airtight container. It also freezes well.
  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan 170°C, gas 5. Butter a 22cm springform tin and line the base with baking paper.
  2. Whiz the pistachios in a food processor until finely ground.
  3. In a mixer or using an electric hand whisk, beat the butter and sugar together for 3-4 minutes until pale and fluffy. Next, whisk in the eggs, one by one, beating well in between each addition. Fold in the ground pistachios, ground almonds, flour and a pinch of salt.
    Tip
    This is delicious as a pudding, too. Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream.
  4. Spoon the cake mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top with the back of a spoon.
  5. For the topping, mix the cranberries, sugar and orange zest, scatter over the top of the cake and lightly press in. Bake for 50-55 minutes.
  6. As soon as the cake is ready, sprinkle the chopped pistachios over the top, pressing them lightly into the surface of the cake. Leave the cake to cool for 15 minutes, then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
