Pistachio Cake - Perfect for St Patrick's Day.....

This is a perfect cake mix for St Patrick's Day (or "Pirish" in our family).  The recipe is from Taste of Home and is one of my favorite cakes to make!

Pistachio Cake

Cake ingredients:

1 yellow cake mix
2 pkgs instant pistachio pudding mix
1 cup water
3/4 c oil
4 eggs
  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mixes, water, eggs and oil; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Glaze:   1 c confectioners sugar, 1 T softened butter, 2-3 T milk
  4. In small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients, adding enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over cake.  
    I took the lazy way out and just melted some canned frosting and drizzled it over the cake!  I also added a little green sugar.

    I also made two little cupcakes for us to enjoy tonight as the cake is for guests tomorrow!

  1. I love cakes like this, sounds yummy and looks so cute with the leprechaun in the middle!☘️

  2. The cake looks delicious and love your presentation. If I made the cake, I'd need to give it to a friend. Sweets here disappear quickly!
