Serves 10
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
 
⅓ cup (45g) pistachio
250g butter, softened
1 lemon, finely zested
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
3 eggs
2½ cups (375g) self-raising flour
½ cup (40g) shredded coconut
1 cup (250g) Greek style yogurt
200g blackberries
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons pistachio, roughly chopped
extra blackberries, to serve
double cream, to serve
 
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Grease a deep 22cm round cake tin, line base with baking paper.
  • Place pistachios in a food processor and pulse until ground, set aside.
  • Place butter, zest and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy. Add eggs one by one, beating well in between additions. If mixture splits slightly, add a little of the flour to recombine.
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir in the ground pistachio, flour, coconut and yogurt.
  • Fold through ½ the berries. Spoon mixture into prepared pan, spread evenly with a plastic spatula.
  • Scatter remaining berries, sugar and pistachios on top. Bake uncovered for about 50–60 minutes or until golden and firm to touch and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Stand for 5 minutes in tin then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Serve cake warm or at room temperature with double cream and more fresh blackberries.
