Pistachio, Lime and Coconut Cake

I have been thinking about making a pistachio cake for a while, but could not find a recipe which had ground pistachios, lime and coconut in it...so I winged it a little.
I used a basic almond/lemon cake recipe and swapped the almond meal for pistachio, added dessicated coconut, lime rind and juice and made a lime syrup (juice and sugar) to pour over the warm cake. Once cool I added a lemon butter icing.
Apart from being in the oven a touch too long, it worked out quite nice, very moist. 
I will try it next time with a mix of almond and pistachio or perhaps add chopped nuts in place of ground(because they can be a little pricey at times).
Nice with a coffee on a stormy sunday.
