Cardamom & Pistachio Cake: Fragrant and nutty

Whether you know the spice as Caradmom or Cardamon, it's incredibly fragrant and a great bedfellow (or should the be cake fellow?) with Pistachios. This case is very light, fragrant and nutty. With an optional citrus topping it's very very moreish. You'll need:
For the cake:
185g Self Raising Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
150g Pistacho Nuts
185g Caster Sugar
125g Plain Yoghurt
3 Large Eggs
185g Butter
1 tsp Ground Cardamom
For the topping shown here:
50g Pistacho Nuts
125g Caster Sugar
2 Limes
75ml Water
Or try it with butter cream topping with a few pistachios blended in.
