Serves: 8 - 10
200g butter, softened
250g Waitrose Golden Light Brown Soft Sugar
4 medium essential Waitrose Free Range Eggs
200g self-raising flour
½ tsp baking powder
50g pistachios, roughly chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Grease and base line a 900g loaf tin.
2. Whisk the butter and 200g sugar together with a handheld beater until pale and fluffy. Peel ribbons of zest off 1 lime, finely shred and reserve for garnish. Finely grate the zest from the remaining limes and add to the butter and sugar mixture. Whisk in the eggs, 1 at a time.
3. Sift the flour and baking powder together and fold into the cake mix with all but 1 tbsp of pistachio nuts. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
4. Once the cake is out, mix the juice of the 3 limes with the remaining 50g sugar and drizzle half of this over the warm cake. Add the shredded zest and remaining pistachios to the lime juice and place in a small pan. Bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes until caramelised and golden, then spread over the cake and allow to cool.
