From a yellowed clipping found in Gran's cookbook. The date reads1974. I remember it tasting absolutely scrumptious. I believe it was called “Watergate Cake” because there were a lot of “weird” ingredients in the mix.
1 pkg. cake mix, yellow or white
1 pkg. instant pistachio pudding
1 c. oil
3 whole eggs
1 c. Canada Dry Club soda
1 c. nuts (chopped very fine)
Mix cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil, club soda and nuts together. Blend well and beat 4 minutes. Grease and flour Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Cool in pan for 20 minutes. Turn out on plate and when cool, frost with icing.
2 pkgs. Dream Whip
1 box instant pistachio pudding
1 1/4 c. cold milk
Blend all together and beat until light and fluffy. Spread on cake. This cake must be kept refrigerated at all times.
