step 1

Preheat your oven to 180 C. Grease a 6" cake tin, line the bottom with parchment paper and butter it lightly. Finely chop the pistachios and walnuts.

step 2

Combine the chopped nuts with brown sugar and melted butter in a bowl. Spread this nut mixture evenly over the parchment paper in your cake tin.

step 3

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cardamom powder, and cinnamon powder in a bowl.

step 4

Whisk in the caster sugar and almond flour. In a separate bowl, mix together the yogurt, oil, and orange blossom water.

step 5

Pour over the dry ingredients, and mix well until no flour streaks are visible. Its a thick batter. Pour the cake batter carefully over the nuts.

step 6

Bake at 180 C for 45-50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.

step 7

Let the cake rest in the pan for 5-7 minutes before turning it over on a serving platter. Carefully remove the parchment paper.

step 8

While the cake is baking, get the syrup ready by boiling water with sugar, a cinnamon stick, lemon juice, and honey.

step 9

Once it comes to a boil, lower the heat and let it simmer on low for 10 minutes. Take out the cinnamon stick and let the syrup cool a bit.

step 10

Poke holes all over the surface of the cake using a toothpick. Carefully spoon over the syrup. Let it cool for at least 45 minutes.

step 11

Decorate with chopped pistachios, dried rose petals, and gold leaf. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
