List of ingredients for Almond and pistachio cake

==== For the cake====

* 185g Butter, softened
* 185g Caster sugar
* 3 medium Eggs, beaten
* 100g Ground almonds
* 25g Pistachio nuts, Ground
* 85g Semolina
* 2tsps Baking powder
====To finish====

* Lemon, (Juice only)
* 1 tablespoon clear Honey (or Sweet Freedom if preferred)
* 1 teaspoon extra Pistachio nuts or Almonds, chopped

* Pre-heat the Oven to 180C (350F - gas 4)
* Put all of the Cake ingredients into a bowl.
* Using a spoon or a food Mixer, combine all of the ingredients well, until you have a nice, smooth Batter.
* Tip into the prepared tin and Bake for around 40 minutes or until cooked.
* Leave in the tin for 10 minutes, before turning out onto a rack.
* In the meantime, mix the Lemon juice and Honey - it will combine easier if you put it in the Microwave on full for abut 10 seconds.
* Whilst Cake is still warm, prick a few holes in it using a skewer.
* Pour the Lemon and Honey mixture over the Cake, encouraging it to sink into the holes.
* Sprinkle the top of the Cake with the chopped Pistachios or Almonds.
