Cooking With Alicia & Annie: 7-Up Watergate Cake

This is my 2nd entry for the month for Cooking With Alicia & Annie. I'm not sure where this recipe got its name. It is really easy to make. The recipe doesn't say if you are supposed to beat or just and mix. I beat the first 5 ingredients of the cake batter and mixed in the nuts and coconut. My son licked the bowl clean!

For the frosting, I mixed everything but the coconut. The coconut I sprinkled on top of the cake.

The cake is delicious! Especially after it's been in the fridge for a while.

Ingredients:

Cake:
1 pkg white cake mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 cup 7-UP, Sprite or Club Soda (I used Sprite Zero)
3 1/2 oz pistacio pudding, instant
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/2 cup coconut

Topping:
8 oz. Cool Whip, thawed (I used sugar free)
3 1/2 oz pistachio pudding, instant
1/2 c. coconut
3/4 c. chopped nuts

Directions:

Mix all cake ingredients. Pour into greased bundt pan and bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
Fold all topping ingredients until mixed. Spread over cooled cake and sprinkle with coconut and nuts.

Store in refrigerator.

Before putting in oven - love the green!

After coming out of the oven.

Not the prettiest cake, but yummy!
