THIS is probably one of the BEST cakes you will ever have! It's so easy to make too! This cake is so flavorful and the opposite of dry! The kids will love it too because it's green! This recipe if from our neighbor in Akron, Ohio! Her husband is a very talented chef but she has some pretty good cooking skills too! She even started a catering company. She made this for us one time and we've been making it ever since. When I lived with my grandmother before moving to Buffalo she practically made me make it for her every week! There were no rules involving when it was appropriate to cake when it came to this one! The only think out of the ordinary that you need for this is a bundt pan...and that might not be out of the ordinary for many people! Once you make this, you will be thanking me!!!!

Pistachio Pudding Cake Recipe

  • 1 Box Yellow Cake
  • 3 Boxes Instant Pistachio Pudding
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup + 1tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • Flour for dusting
  • Baking Spray

First things first! Preheat your oven to 350 and start to boil the water on the stove. Then spray the bundt pan with the baking the spray. Then take the flour and dust the entire bundt pan with the flour.

Next take the yellow cake mix, 3 boxes of pudding, eggs and vegetable oil and mix together in a big bowl. I use a whisk for all the mixing. This is going to be thick and come out globby. 

Next take the one cup boiling water and add it to the mixture. Then take the whisk and carefully mix it into the mixture. Once the batter is thinner and the water has been incorporated you're ready to add it to the pan.

Make sure the batter is evenly dispersed around the pan and then put it into the over for 50-60 minutes. I would start checking at 50. Pull it out and use the toothpick test method to check your cake. If there is nothing on the toothpick pull it out a let it cool for a couple minutes.

After a couple minutes grab a plate and place it on the top of the pan and flip it! The flour should help the cake easily fall onto the plate (or if you're fancy a cake plate) and it's ready to serve!
