Pistachio & milkchocolate squares

Pistachio & milk chocolate "squares" (as you can see, I made them round, don't know why really!) They're good though :]

Ingredients
140g shelled pistachios (I used 90 grams without shells)
200g milk chocolate, broken into chunks
200g golden caster sugar
200g very soft butter
3 eggs
200g self-raising flour
100ml milk
150ml soured cream

Method
  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 20cm square cake tin with baking parchment. Whizz 125g of the pistachios, 75g of the chocolate and about half the sugar in a food processor until very finely chopped. Tip into a bowl with remaining sugar, butter, eggs, flour and milk, plus a pinch of salt, and beat. Scrape into the tin and bake for 35-45 mins until a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool.
  2. Melt the remaining milk chocolate, stir in the soured cream and cool until spreadable. Trim the edges off the cake, then split in half. Spread a little icing over the base, sandwich the top of sponge back on. Spread remaining icing over the top, roughly chop the remaining pistachios and scatter them over. Cut into 16 squares to serve.

  5. Yeah, I don't even know why I started to make them round. It was quite a job to get them round! I used an old jam/weck glass thingie (I don't know what they are called), but they ended up getting stuck, so I had to slam them out. And repeat it for over 20 times ^^"
