Pumpkin Pistachio Pound Cake

Love nuts in bakes and i know i will be making a pumpkin pound cake for the weekend bake.Finally combined both the pumpkin puree and coarse pistachio nuts to make this spongy and super moist pound cakes. Pistachio nuts gives a wonderful and marvellous texture to this cake and you can enjoy thoroughly just along with a cup of tea or coffee for your evening snack or either for a quick breakfast.

I went for usual preparation of pound cake in which i have added pumpkin puree and pistachios else nothing is new in this cake, but the final result was simply tremendous. A super moist cake with a wonderful mild pumpkin flavour,  this mini pound cakes are quite addictive.Sending to 60days of Christmas hosted by Priya and Divya
