This pound cake recipe caught my eye as it is chock-full of yummy chocolate chips. Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip pound cake I ask?

But there’s a secret ingredient in this pound cake which makes this recipe extra special in my book.

Pistachios! Now I’m a huge fan of pistachios and am always looking for new recipes to use them in. And pistachios and chocolate chips are a great combination.

As well as whole pistachios, the cake batter includes half a cup of pistachio paste (you make this in your food processor). You might be surprised to see that your pistachio paste is not green but brown – how does that happen?

Drizzled with a vanilla glaze and covered in more chopped pistachios, this pound cake recipe is an absolute winner. What’s more, this is an easy to make cake too.

For lovers of pound cake. Of chocolate chips. And of pistachios.
