I received this recipe from a co-worker years ago and lost it. She called it Pistachio Bread and I tried looking for it here with no luck. This is great. I made again recently. However, because she used loaf pans for hers and I don't have a bundt cake pan I did adjust the cooking time a little. However, that was the only adjustment I made.


Great cake! Word of warning, though. Batter is VERY thick and sticky and does not pour. The longer it sits in bowl, the thicker it gets, due to instant pudding thickening. Have your pan ready before mixing batter and use a spatula to get batter to pan. Nut/brown sugar in center is perfect. Would definitely make again.


I made this cake for St. Patrick's Day. It didn't make sense to me to use a yellow cake mix with green pudding and expect it to come out green so I used a white cake mix and it turned out a nice shade of green. I love icing so I iced the cake with a tub of ready-made buttercream frosting. Thanks for sharing this recipe - I love bundt cakes and this is perfect for the occasion!
