White chocolate and pistachio cake

The decadent sweetness of white chocolate and vibrant green colour makes this cake very special. I like to remove the cake from the oven when it is slightly underdone so that the cake is moist and squidgy.

White chocolate-150g

Butter-150g

Castor sugar-150g

Egg-2

Salt – one pinch

Plain flour-200g

Pistachios-150g

Vanilla extract-1 teaspoon

  •  Line the sides and bottom of a square baking tray 20cm x 20cm with baking paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Chop the white chocolate into small pieces and melt with butter over hot water, keep aside.
  • Whisk eggs, salt  and sugar until frothy,  add the melted chocolate mixture and fold in gently.
  • Add vanilla extract and  sifted plain flour, fold in. Add pistachios and mix gently.
  • Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tray and bake in the  preheated oven for 30-40 minutes.
