Once I tried this super easy bread to make, I was hooked. Of course, I had to try other flavors and come up with other names (yes, go ahead and groan)...Like this became Grinch Bread, and I also chose Reindeer Poop Bread, and Dirty Snow Bread. Yes, I have a warped sense of humor! But it is so fun to alter recipes and titles, I just can't help myself!
Tried with oreo pudding, for Christmas 2018, so Sled Team Bread...and Banana pudding is now Ape Bread. Lol

How to Make Christmas Pistachio Bread


  1. Combine ingredients, mix well. Pour into two greased 9x5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees 40 min. Toothpick test.
  2. Note: it took 60 min for toothpick to come out clean. I also tried it with other pudding flavors...and named it other things with the other puddings.
    Butterscotch (not a favorite) became Reindeer Poop Bread
    Coconut Cream (which is fantastic, and a definite favorite) became Dirty Snow Bread
    and this Pistachio Bread became Grinch Bread!
