Step 3. 

When egg mixture has thickened, slowly drizzle in oil and milk mixture with the machine running.  Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture and mix just to ombined.  Drizzle in butter and pistachios and mix until just combined.

Step 4. 

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake, rotating pan once after 40 minutes until the top of the cake is golden, the center bounces back when touched and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.  unmold cake from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack.  Serve with Blueberry Compote and whipped cream, garnished with pistachios.

Step 5.  Blueberry Compote

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of blueberries, sugar, water and balsamic.  Bring mixture to a boil and simmer about 5 minutes, until blueberries split and volume has reduced by about one quarter.  Fold in remaining blueberries and add lime zest.  Allow to cool.
