Pistachio Cake

Poor, poor pistachio!
More often than not I hear "oh, no thanks...I don't like pistachio"
Seriously people?

Give it a fair try, what did pistachio ever do to you?

Frankly, it's a fave of mine. Pudding, ice cream, shelled nuts, I will eat them all.

This cake was super easy due to the inclusion of a boxed cake mix. I love desserts that come together really quickly and look/taste like you slaved.

1 Box white cake mix
1 Package (4oz) pistachio instant pudding mix
½ Cups orange juice
½ Cup water
½ Cup vegetable oil
4 Eggs
¾ Cups chocolate syrup

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Grease and flour bundt pan
3. Mix all ingredients but chocolate syrup and beat for two minutes on medium-high
4. Pour ¾ of the batter into the bundt pan
5. Add chocolate syrup to the remaining batter and mix well.
6. Pour chocolate batter on top of the pistachio batter
7. Bake for 1 hour


Please ignore the fact that apparently someone attacked my OJ before I got to making this cake

Very moist, and a crowd pleaser!

  1. I love the nuts but not so much the pudding. But hey, I may like the cake. Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes. Pinning.
