Ingredients

250  grams low fat yogurt plain
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 egs
220 grams brown sugar
150 grams almond flour
150 grams semolina
 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
60 grams chopped pistacchios
1 pinch of saffron
100 g of almond milk (or milk)
2 tablespoons rose water  (I use only one tablespoon mine coming from Lebanon was strong)
grated rind of 1 lemon or orange (I used orange)

For the syrup

juice and zest of one orange
125 g water 
125 grams brown sugar
2 tablespoons rose water (I used one tablespoons and was fine)

Note: Anyway you can make your own rose water with fresh petals )

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°c (370 ° F)

Line a mold about 24 cm in diameter and coated with wax paper  or butter and flour.

In a little glass bowl put the almond milk (or  milk) and a pinch of saffron, warm up for a few seconds in the microwave.
Set aside.

In other  bowl beat the eggs with the sugar until the mixture is smooth and quite thick, combine yogurt, almond flour, semolina and baking powder, then add cardamom, orange peel ands chopped pistachios. 
 Add rose water to the mixture of milk and saffron and add this to the mixture  of eggs, stirring well.

Pour the mixture on the mold you lined with wax paper  and bake for about 35-40 minutes (depending on oven) until doing the toothpick inserted in cake will come out clean and dry)

While the cake is cooking prepare the syrup :
Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring a boil: simmer until is thickened (about 5 minutes)

When the cake is cooked with a brush distribute the syrup over the surface, decorated with some roses or petals and chopped pistachios.
