Ingredients
  • 50g Pistachio nuts
  • 15g Rice flour
  • ¼ tsp Baking powder
  • 75g Ground almond/almond meal
  • 3 large Eggs, separated (70g each)
  • 50g Sugar
  • 20g Sugar
  • ½ Red apple (about 60g), unpeeled and grated
  • 50g Butter, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Grease and line the base of a 7 inch (18cm) cake pan.
  2. Place the pistachio nuts and rice flour into a food processor and process until the nuts are finely ground. The flour helps the nuts to grind evenly. Add the baking powder and ground almonds and pulse till just combined.
  3. Using an electric mixer beat the egg yolks and the 50g sugar on high speed till the mixture is very thick. Stir in the ground nut/flour mix, apple and butter and stir well. The mixture will be quite stiff at this stage, set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites to soft peak stage then add 20g sugar and beat to firm peak.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the nut mixture in two batches. Place the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for approximately 50 minutes until cooked through.
  6. Allow the cake to set in the pan for 5-10 minutes then turn out onto a cake rack to cool.
  7. Dust the cake with a little icing sugar before serving.recipe adapted from Taste.com with slight adjustments
