How to Make Pistachio Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. TO PREPARE THE CAKE:
    Combine all ingredients and mix at medium speed with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. Pour batter into a greased and floured cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan then turn out onto a serving plate. Cool cake completely.
  2. TO PREPARE THE FROSTING:
    Combine Dream Whip with pudding mix in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Slowly add milk and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Increase mixer speed to high and beat frosting for 4-6 minutes or until soft peaks form. Spread frosting evenly over cooled cake. Garnish with finely chopped pecans or pistachios. Refrigerate cake until ready to serve.
