Just checking, no flour in the cake part? Just nuts, fat, and powdered sugar?

Recipe question for:
Pistachio Cakes (An Iranian delicacy)

I've not made that particular cake, but have done similar nut based ones. Although we tend to think of flour as strictly a wheat product, in this case the ground nuts and powdered sugar are acting as stand-ins. This one uses pistachios, but there are many others using other types of nuts. The powdered sugar also contains a bit of cornstarch, which helps stabilize the structure as well. It will make a dense, but moist cake, no wheat flour needed.
