Pistachio Chocolate Bundt Cake

Pistachio Chocolate Cake | My Kitchen AddictionsThis Pistachio Chocolate Cake has a hint of green but an abundance of chocolate.  This recipe comes to you from my beloved Grandma Meals.  I’m sure I’ve told you about her before, but in case you missed the post, let me tell you about how special my mother’s mom was.  Grandma Meals lived a hop, skip and a jump from my house on the family farm while I was growing up.  I could see her house from my bedroom window, so going to grandma’s house was almost a daily occurrence.  From the books she read to me as a young child to the holiday meals she cooked for our family, she was a special lady who left me with a lot of memories.  Most of all, the loved she shared with me is still with me today!  Grandmas made amazing scrambled eggs, buttered popcorn and homemade rolls, just to name a few of my favorites.  I was lucky enough to acquire a lot of her recipes like the one I’m sharing with you today.
