Pistachio Pudding

  • Add the ingredients into a mixer and mix on high until light and fluffy.


  • Boxed vanilla cake, white cake, or yellow cake mixes can all be used for this recipe. We prefer yellow cake mix.
  • Use instant pudding for this recipe.
  • No need to add extra food coloring. The coloring comes from the pistachio pudding.
  • Make this cake in a bunt pan, sheet pan, or two 8x8 round pans. If you're going to do powdered sugar dusting a bundt pan looks the prettiest. For an easy cake with a layer of fluffy frosting, we like a sheet pan and for a layered cake, cream cheese frosting looks beautiful.
  • Make this cake organic by using an organic boxed cake and all organic ingredients. The only ingredient that won't be organic is the pistachio pudding mix.
