Pistachio and chocolate cake, to be precise. Lovely addition to our recipe book, even if a large quantity of pistachios were brutally crushed in the making of this cake. And by crushed, I mean positively blitzed. To smithereens.
This is a sort-of-not-quite-really homage to the new series of The Great British Bake Off (who's excited???), because if that's not the best excuse to make cake, then I don't know what it.
Other than, for the heck of it. (Also birthdays are a pretty good cause.)
I've rambled on enough, you're obviously here for a recipe, so let's just get right to it.
