Annamaria's Story

I simple popular recipe. I sometimes do the glaze or just dust with powder sugar. Chopped Pistachios folded into the batter is a great addition but not necessary. I make this every Saint Patrick's Day as my husband is Irish.. I add green food coloring drops to make it more festive and bring out the "Green" on the holiday!


1 box
betty crocker super moist yellow cake mix
2 pkg
3.4 oz. each of instant pistachio pudding
1 1/2 c
1/4 c
vegetable oil
drops of green food coloring (optional)
1/2 c
chopped pistachios (optional)
1 c
powdered sugar
1 Tbsp
butter softened

2-3 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mixes, water, eggs, food coloring and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Add pistachios if desired.
Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. bundt cake pan. Bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
In small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients, adding enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over cake. Or dust with Powdered Sugar instead of glaze.

    I am confused as to why the 1 star Bea if you haven't made it don't rate it. I happen to know just how wonderful this recipe is since I have made it for years for Christmas and Thanks Annamarie for posting it to remind me of the past. I am leaving it a 5 star cause I have done this recipe for years. YUMMO!!!!
