How to make Pistachio Nut Cake

Clean the pistachio nuts removing their hardest "shell"

Dives the nuts, for a few seconds, in boiling water to remove that reddish skin, which is around them.


Repeat the same procedure with the almonds or hazelnuts.

Then grind them with a grinder or food processor, reducing the nuts in a kind of wet flour. Reserve it.

In a bowl, mix the eggs with sugar and icing
sugar, until getting a whitish mixture.

After that, add to the mixture the melted butter,
pistachio/almonds or hazelnuts wet flour, and milk, mixing them very well.

Finally, add to the mixture all-purpose flour and
baking powder.

Then put the mixture in a baking-pan and bake it for about 25-30 minutes at 180 degrees or until
pushing a toothpick into the cake and it comes out clean it's cooked.

Perfect to breakfast and brunch!!!

    It was so long I wanted to bake this in a gluten free version and finely I did today. I used the commercial gf cake flour and I actually had to add one more cup of flour with the 4 eggs, the next time I should use only 2 eggs for the gf version. The result was not so green in color as yours, but it was delicious anyway! Thanks for the recipe!:)
