SPLIT THE CARDAMOM PODS TO REMOVE THE SEEDS, AND GRIND THE SEEDS INTO A POWDER. TIP THE PISTACHIOS AND THE CARDAMOM POWDER INTO A BLENDER AND BLITZ BUT CAREFUL NOT TO OVER WHIZZ AS IT'S GOOD TO RETAIN SOME CRUNCH - MIX TOGETHER THE PISTACHIOS, POLENTA AND BICARB OF SODA IN A BOWL. GENTLY HEAT THE BUTTER AND OLIVE OIL IN A PAN UNTIL THE BUTTER IS MELTED - LEAVE TO COOL SLIGHTLY. IN ANOTHER BOWL WHISK THE EGGS AND SUGAR UNTIL LIGHT AND FLUFFY, THEN SLOWLY STIR IN THE COOLED BUTTER AND OLIVE OIL, FOLLOWED BY THE NUT AND POLENTA MIXTURE. THEN ADD IN THE ZEST AND JUICE OF THE LEMON, POUR THE MIXTURE INTO THE GREASED CAKE TIN AND BAKE IN THE OVEN FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES. ONCE COOKED THE CAKE SHOULD BE REALLY LIGHT AND MOIST - IT IS DELICIOUS SERVED WARM WITH SOME VANILLA ICE CREAM.

LET'S KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY!

DESPITE OUR BEST EFFORTS OUR STOCK OF OLIVE OIL IS RUNNING PRETTY LOW AND, ALTHOUGH MORE IS ON THE WAY, THE NEW CUSTOMS REGULATIONS MEAN THAT DELIVERY TIMING IS AN UNKNOWN - HOPEFULLY IT WON'T BE TOO LONG! I REALLY DON'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT CUSTOMERS, SO IF AT ALL POSSIBLE I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU ARE ABLE TO LIMIT ORDERS OF TINS TO A SINGLE ONE UNTIL THE NEW DELIVERY ARRIVES - THIS WAY WE WILL HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY - THANK YOU SO MUCH - SUSIE X
