Hi all! 

So I've been asked to do a pistachio cake and for the first time in a while I am a little clueless. Does anyone have a good recipe for this? I also saw a Pistachio extract online however the reviews say that it taste like chemicals and nothing like Pistachio. I want to make sure the flavor comes through for this pregnant lady! lol. 

Thanks!

I have made this many, many times and, as simple and elementary as it sounds, it has always been a huge success with everyone.  I see no reason this recipe could not be made as a layer cake instead of a sheet cake, if that is your choice.  The recipe calls for pecans, but I have used pistachios, too and it is good either way.

Yes, one can make a good tasting pistachio cake by adding 1/3 to 1/2 cup of very well chopped (ground?) nuts to any basic white, yellow, or fr. vanilla cake.   I have done it using this recipe:      http://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/7445/the-original-wasc-cake-recipe    Some people have added a drop or two (no more!) to the batter for a light green color.
