Pistachio Cake is a delicious cake recipe that I enjoyed while growing up. You use a boxed cake mix, and add some additional ingredients to this and you have a wonderfully fresh tasting pistachio cake. My grandmother McDowell was often made pistachio cake when I went to go visit her. You can prepare this as a double layered cake or even in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Both are equally as good. I hope you enjoy this classic cake recipe that I have enjoyed for so many years.
This cake can bring back the memories.
