I made this for my 32 year old twins birthday and we all loved it. My daughter-in-law has already requested it for her birthday this year! We were all fine with the walnuts but I think I'll use all pistachios next time. Delicious!
Awesome recipe. Used club soda instead of lemon lime soda to cut down on the sweet. It was awesome!!
This is much better than the original that used the powdered whipped topping mix. The thawed topping makes it fluffier, I actually used the "creamy" version. It was slightly softer, but looked exactly like the photo. No walnuts for us : )
Excellent; lighter, fresher, more flavorful than the recipe I have had for 30+ years that uses four eggs, club soda, and no nuts
Love this easy recipe!
I don't t think it's fair for me to give this cake a rating because everyone else here seems to have love it, and I didn't. The cake baked up nicely, but it's way too sweet - and I have a huge sweet-tooth, but this had too much sugar. I'm also disappointed at how the cake took on a walnut flavor and the pistachio flavor just disappeared. And, why were walnuts listed? Why wasn't chopped pistachios called for? I would not make this cake again; it won't make my recipe box, as there are other recipes more worthy to try out.
This recipe is a homerun! I made it for work and everyone raved about how moist it was. The icing was spot on! I would definitely make this recipe again.
I remember this recipe as a child and just discovered it again. I don't use the walnuts either as the nut flavoring from the pudding is enough. I also make it as a layered cake for a change
This cake is so moist and delicious! And the frosting is just great! The one change I made in the recipe is I eliminated the walnuts (my family doesn't like them) and used chopped pistachios instead.
This is a huge hit every time I make it even with those who don't like pistachio's or people like my husband who don't like frosting they love this.
