How to Make Vintage Pistachio Cake


  • 1Mix everything in a bowl, beating 4 mins.
  • 2Pour into greased tube pan no NOT flour pan!!
  • 3Bake in preheated oven 350 F degrees 40 minutes. Freezes well!
  • 4Notes:
    I add 1 tsp. almond extract to batter.
    I use a bunt pan, and bake 350 F degrees for 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan 15 minutes. Invert pan, cool cake completely.
    Dust with confectioners sugar.
  • 5For Frosting:
    * Opts 1:
    1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
    1 pint of heavy whipping cream

    * Opts 2:
    16 oz. container of Cool Whip mixed with 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix

    * You can change up and add other ingredients as you wish such as chocolate chips and cherries. I've also changed the cake and puddng mixes to make other flavors.
  • 6* FYI!!!!!
    Never use pudding with a cake mix that already has pudding in it. That's what makes it fail.
    Duncan Hines, works every time!
