Icing totally makes this cake. My kids, whom have never eaten pistachio pudding before, loved it! I think I baked longer than necessary, but I run into that all the time with my oven. It still tasted really good. This was really good and as others have said; very easy. We will def be making this Again.

Oh Carol, Awesome is definitely the word for this cake. I used 3/4 cup vegetable oil and I also sprinkled walnuts on the top instead of pistachios. My whole family loved it. But I knew they would; your recipes have never failed me. Thanks for posting this great recipe.

Another blow-out recipe Kitten! I prepared this for my 12 canasta ladies yesterday and it was a total success. They all now have the recipe. I've made Pistachio cake before but not your version. The addition of the lemon-time flavored soda was different, the amount of oil and the inclusion of chopped walnuts--all great changes. I allowed the cake to refrigerate for 3 hours before frosting, put it back into the frig till cutting. It's really very attractive made in a bundt pan. Thenka for posting--this will be the ONLY pistachio cake I make in the future!!
