Fold in the finely chopped pistachios.
Pour the batter evenly into the prepared bundt pan.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes, then run a dull knife along the edges to loosen the cake.
Allow the cake to cool completely.
