I simple popular recipe. I sometimes do the glaze or just dust with powder sugar. Chopped Pistachios folded into the batter is a great addition but not necessary. I make this every Saint Patrick's Day as my husband is Irish.. I add green food coloring drops to make it more festive and bring out the "Green" on the holiday!

betty crocker super moist yellow cake mix

Annamaria, I finally got around to making your incredible cake. My nephew requested a pistachio cake for his birthday and I knew I would have to try your recipe. Outstanding recipe:super moist, packed with flavor and loved by everyone. I added the nuts inside as well. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe with us. :-)
