Pistachio Raisin Cake

(Fistikli Uzumlu Kek)

<br />
Pistachio Raisin Cake
1 group:
3 extra large eggs, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup milk, room temperature
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Zest of one lemon
1 1/4 cups flour, all purpose
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup Sultana or Golden raisin, floured
1/2 cup pistachio, crumbled

You can use any kind of Cake mold, I used one with a hole in the center, oiled, floured

Beat the eggs with sugar until creamy using a mixer in a large bowl. The amount of the batter should be doubled or tripled:) Add the rest of the ingredients, mix. Sift and add the ingredients, mix. Add the raisins and pistachios in it, mix. Pour the batter into the mold.

Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C). Place the mold on the middle rack. Bake it until toothpick comes out clean. It takes app. 45 minutes. But do not forget! baking time may change from one oven to another:) Wait for 30 minutes, then place the cake on the wire rack to cool it down.
