Heat oven at 190°C.

Roast pistachios 10 min, and allow to cool before pulsing to a powder.

Lower oven heat to 175°C. 

Grease and flour a small cake loaf tin.

Beat butter together with sugar.

Add the pistachios, lemon zest, vanilla, eggs, salt, half the flour, lemon juice, the remaining flour.

Spoon the batter into the cake tin, and bake 50 min.
