Pistachio Bundt Cake

"My Step-Dad's favorite time of the year was Christmas.  He was like a little kid on Christmas morning.  He often had to wait for my sister and I to get up to see what Santa had brought us and so we could all open our presents.  I think we totally drove him nuts because we thought we needed to sleep 'til noon.  How we must have tortured him!  We lost our Step-dad this year and in honor of him I wanted to post his very favorite recipe, Pistachio Cake, at his very favorite time of year, Christmas.  This year we will be celebrating Bob's birthday and Christmas without him, but we will raise a glass of milk and eat a slice of Pistachio cake to honor him. Love ya and miss ya Bob!  There isn't a moment that goes by that I don't think about you.  I pray that you found peace."   

Pistachio Bundt Cake:
1 white cake mix
1 (3-3/4 ounce) package of pistachio instant pudding
3 eggs
1-1/3 cups water
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup flour

Mix everything together until completely combined.  Spoon batter into a Bundt pan, that has been sprayed very well with non-stick cooking spray with flour.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.  Allow to cool completely.  Remove from the pan and frost with Pistachio Icing.

Pistachio Icing
1-1/2 cups of milk
1 envelope of Dream Whip brand whipped topping (Located on the baking aisle or by the Jello products.)
1 (3-3/4 ounce) package of pistachio instant pudding

Combine icing ingredients and beat slowly with a hand mixer. Gradually turn to high speed and beat for 4-6 minutes.  Spread on cooled cake.
