The sweet, slightly acidic flavor of fresh strawberries begs for a rich, crunchy accompaniment. And for that, we turned to pistachios.

We start by finely chopping the nuts and mixing them into the dense batter of this rich cake. You'll find the taste and texture similar to pound cake, but -- thanks to the pistachios -- with deeper flavor. The batter also comes together faster and more easily than a traditional poundcake.

We top the finished cake with both strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. For an extra nutty finish, we also sprinkle additional pistachios over the top, then tie everything together with honey-spiked Greek yogurt for spooning onto individual slices of the torte. It's the perfect way to appreciate freshly picked strawberries.
