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!

Ingredients

BUNDT CAKE
1 box
betty crocker super moist yellow cake mix
2 pkg
3.4 oz. each of instant pistachio pudding
1 1/2 c
water
4
eggs
1/4 c
vegetable oil
3
drops of green food coloring (optional)
1/2 c
chopped pistachios (optional)
GLAZE
1 c
powdered sugar
1 Tbsp
butter softened
2-3 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.

Annamaria, I finally got around to making your incredible cake. My nephew requested a pistachio cake for his birthday and I knew I would have to try your recipe. Outstanding recipe:super moist, packed with flavor and loved by everyone. I added the nuts inside as well. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe with us. :-)
