Step 1: Preheat Oven

Start your baking adventure by preheating your oven to a cozy 350°F. This simple step ensures your cake bakes evenly and comes out perfectly every time.
Pro Tip: Insert a toothpick to make sure the oven is hot enough before placing the cake.

Step 2: Prepare Cake Batter

Whisk together the olive oil, sugar, and eggs until well combined. Gradually fold in the dry ingredients - all-purpose flour, ground almonds, baking powder, baking soda, and semolina. This delightful mixture forms a smooth, luscious batter that's just waiting to be baked into something marvelous.
Pro Tip: For a lighter cake, beat the egg whites separately and fold them in at the end.

Step 3: Bake the Cake

Gently pour your batter into a lined baking tin, encouraging it to settle evenly. The oven, preheated and welcoming, is ready for the cake. Bake it for about 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. The anticipation builds as the aroma fills your kitchen.
Pro Tip: Keep an eye on the cake after 40 minutes to prevent over-baking.

Step 4: Making the Pistachio Honey Syrup

While the cake cools, bring a pan to medium heat and toast the roughly chopped pistachios, stirring gently. Add in the honey, orange juice, and lemon juice, letting the mixture bubble with joy for a few seconds. This syrup, rich and fragrant, is the secret to our cake's irresistible charm.
Pro Tip: Toasting the pistachios beforehand enhances their nutty flavor.

Step 5: Assemble and Serve

Finally, pierce your cake lovingly with a knife and lavishly drizzle over your homemade pistachio honey syrup. Allow the syrup to work its magic, soaking into the cake and infusing it with flavors. Slice it up, serve to your eager guests, and watch as they marvel at the moist, flavorful cake that you've created.
Pro Tip: Let the cake sit with the syrup overnight for deeper flavor.
