This Lemon Pistachio Cake recipe has my name all over it.

I love nutty citrus cakes, especially when they’re as easy to make as this one. The effort to taste ratio is really good here – minimum effort for maximum flavor.

Wholemeal flour and crushed pistachios give the cake a little bit of a rustic appeal. There’s fresh and tangy lemon juice and zest, plus some vanilla yogurt in the cake itself. Finish it all off with a gorgeous lemon syrup and even more pistachios and your taste-buds will be singing.

It’s almost surprising that a cake that’s so quick and easy to make has such a vibrant flavor.

This is one of those cakes that gets better the longer you leave it. But it’s so delicious, you’ll be lucky to have any left-overs to try that out.
