Orange and Pistachio Cake

Orange and Pistachio Cake
The baking ban is over thanks to being on cake duty at work for this month's birthdays. Unfortunately I didn't have the time to bake something spectacular, but it was a blessing in disguise as this cake is wonderful! It is deliciously moist, however remains light unlike other flour-less cakes. 

The last lonely slice...
For once I actually followed a recipe! Actually, I lie, instead of drowning the cake in a syrup, I made a simple glace icing and topped the cake with rose petals and pistachios. Apart from that it is as per the recipe.

To save time I boiled the oranges the night before, blended them and left in the fridge. This meant that  it took me only 5 mins to prepare the ingredients, 10 minutes to make the batter and 60 minutes to bake the cake. Easily achievable after work.

All in all I highly recommend this cake. It is gluten free, dairy free, not super sweet and moreover absolutely delicious! A definite keeper.
