baking Orange, Pistachio & Olive Cake.
CARINA Contini runs The Scottish Cafe inside the Scottish National Gallery at the bottom of The Mound, in Edinburgh.
The Great British Bake Off won't have a look in with this Mediterranean delight - a textured, slightly crunchy, zesty cake that's very different but totally moreish. An added perk it doesn't need icing so it's good for the waistline too.
INGREDIENTS 4 eggs 210g caster sugar 210g pistachio nuts 130ml olive oil 100g butter 5 oranges, zest and juice 50g polenta 75g ground almonds 1tsp baking powder 75g flour METHOD Preheat the oven to 160C.
1 2 Start by beating together the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
Melt together the butter and olive oil.
3 4 Slowly mix in the orange juice and zest to the egg and sugar mixture and the butter and oil.
Blitz the polenta, pistachio nuts, ground 5 almonds, flour and baking powder to a fine crumb, then gently fold in to the egg mixture.
6 Add to a lined cake tin and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Leave it to cool, then serve. Enjoy.
