Nutty cinnamon-orange cake

Nutty cinnamon-orange cake

We were expecting guests today and thoughts were all over my mind about what to prepare. Finally one of the thoughts hit right and “Bingo”, I decided to make a Pista Orange cake. I had read it on the site some time back and had always wanted to try it out. Started the preparation and added a lot of variations to the original recipe to experiment and make something different out of it.  Voilà, here it is, beautiful and delicious.
