Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour a tube pan and set aside.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl for about 2 minutes. Do not overmix or the cake will get turn out tough and dense!
Bake for 45 minutes until top is cracking in several places. Remove and cool.
Beat ingredients together in a bowl until thick and spreadable. Frost cooled cake and serve with a sprinkle of roasted and salted pistachios for the sweet/salty combination. Or not. We like it both ways.
