"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Pistachio Cake
Pistachio Cake
(Torta di Pistacchio)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
3/4 cup unsalted shelled pistachios (approximately 4 ounces; not dyed red)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons finely grated orange zest (from 3 medium oranges)
 
Directions:
 
Arrange oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350F.

Butter 9-inch diameter round metal pan and line bottom with waxed paper.

Butter paper.

Dust pan with flour, knocking out excess.

Using food processor, pulse pistachios until finely ground, about 30-40 seconds (do not over process, or mixture will become paste.)

Add flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt and pulse briefly to combine.

In small bowl, combine milk and vanilla.

In large bowl using electric mixer at moderate speed, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 1 and 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

Reduce speed to low and add pistachio and milk mixtures alternately in batches, beginning and ending with pistachio mixture and beating after each addition just until combined.

Add orange zest and beat just until combined.

Spread batter evenly in pan and bake until wooden skewer inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes.

Cool in pan on rack 10 minutes, then run knife around cake to loosen and invert onto rack.

Remove paper and serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings.
