If you’re looking for a tasty dessert recipe, you have to try this pistachio cake. The cream cheese glaze is an added bonus. Yum!
I keep talking about my favorite flavors and today is no different. I LOVE pistachio flavored everything. My family grew up by the beach and my Mom often brought pistachios to the beach with us. I have always loved them but as an adult I love them even more.
Today’s recipe is unbelievably easy to make. And honestly if you aren’t a pistachio fan, you could make this and substitute the pudding with another flavor just as easily. Like lemon bundt cake, strawberry bundt cake, etc. The pudding just gives it some flavor and makes it a more moist cake. But have you ever had pistachio cake before? Don’t knock it until you try it!
I make a lot of desserts. My go-to is usually cookies because I have several on hand that are my favorites. I also make quick breads. Notice a theme? Quick and easy. This recipe falls into those to categories. And it tastes great!
It’d be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day but also great for Easter. You can add a few drops of food coloring to make the green even brighter.
