  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease and line the base and side of a 20cm (base measurement) cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Step 2

    Place the pistachios in a food processor or blender and blend or process until finely crushed.
  3. Step 3

    Whisk the egg white, butter, crushed pistachio, icing sugar, sifted flour and orange rind in a large bowl. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Top with the rhubarb.
  4. Step 4

    Bake, covering with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning, for 1 3/4 hours or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 10 mins to cool before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Step 5

    Dust with the extra icing sugar and serve with cream.
