Pistachio Cake

This is my absolute favorite cake. Of course, it's my mom's recipe, so it has to be good! This is the most moist, delicious cake you'll ever eat. And it's super easy to make too. I wish I had been able to get a picture of the inside of the cake to show how moist it is, and it looks really pretty sliced because the cake is cut in half with a layer of frosting in the middle. I made this for St. Patrick's Day, but I usually make it for Christmas too, and decorate it like a wreath.

Mom's Pistachio Cake

Ingredients for Cake:
  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1 package instant pistachio pudding
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup club soda
  • 1 cup oil

Ingredients for Frosting:

  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1 package instant pistachio pudding
  • 1 envelope dream whip


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Mix all cake ingredients together, mixing on medium speed for 2 minutes
  • Pour into greased and floured bundt pan
  • Bake for 50 minutes
  • Cool in pan for 15 minutes
  • Turn onto rack and cool completely
  • Blend all frosting ingredients with an electric mixer and beat until thickened, about 5 minutes (I usually chill the bowl and beaters in the freezer while the cake is cooling to help the frosting thicken quickly)
  • Cut the cake into 2 layers, frost in between layers, then reassamble the cake and frost the outside
  • Keep cake refrigerated

I really believe this is the best cake ever. All cakes should be this cake!

I'm not sure you can refer to a recipe's as your mother's or anyone else's if it's made from a packet mix... It's very difficult to find a recipe for a cake these days that a cake mix isn't listed as the main ingredient. I feel this defeats the purpose.

That is only the case with USA, everything taste like supermarket crap. All comes from box. In Europe we don't even bother with this.
