This is a tasty cake, different from the usual yellow or chocolate. It has a nice pale green color which can be made brighter with food coloring if you need it for St. Patrick's Day :) Serve it plain or with Cool Whip frosting. YUM!

This is moist and delish!I`m adding it to my plan for St. Patty`s Day! I think I`ll pour some Hazelnut Liqueur on the cake after cooking!

I made this for St. Patricks Day & forgot to review, I added the green food coloring. It was very easy & quick to do & came out very moist. I used a bundt pan & just sifted powered sugar over it. Making again very soon. Great recipe!

I made this the other night for my mom's birthday (her and her husband love pistachios)...they loved it! I made one slight change....I added another package of pistachio pudding to the cool whip and whipped it up together to make it a light green color plus give it more pistachio flavor and topped it with chopped pistachios (the sweet with a touch of salty was a hit)...what a pretty cake! She even took a few pieces to work and her co-workers loved it and all want the recipe! :) Thanks!
