I don’t think of myself as someone who leans toward pistachio flavored things, but when it comes down to it, pistachio really has a similar flavor to almond extract which I LUURRRRVVVVV. So I guess that means I’m a pistachio flavor lover too? Anyways, this Pistachio Nut Bundt Cake has that old school appeal with the green color and the bundt cake style and it was different from my normal chocolate calling so I got the ingredients and tried it out!

I found the recipe from Pinterest. I thought it was interesting that instead of water it called for club soda (that was a new one for me), and it also used pudding mix in the frosting (something I’ve always wanted to try), and something called Dream Whip which is super grandma-y to me and feels nostalgic even though I’ve never used it before!
The recipe called this cake Watergate Cake which I wondered about. I gave a slice of this cake to my friend and she did some digging on the name. She found out that pistachio pudding came out around the time of the Watergate Scandal and some people started calling the cake that name because it was filled with nuts and fluff like the Nixon Administration.
The bottom line is this cake is delicious and you should definitely make it!!
