Great recipe! I prefer to use a tub of Cool Whip mixed with one packet of pistachio pudding for frosting as it has a stiffer consistency. Rave reviews on this cake!


I'm not a big cake fan, but wanted something easy to make for a work potluck. But OH MY GOSH THIS CAKE WAS TASTY!!!! I put crushed pistachios on top, and made the "icing" out of coolwhip and pistachio pudding mix. Excellent! I imagine you could substitute other flavors of pudding in this cake and it would be a wonderful alternative.


i gave this recipe 4 stars only because it is not a particularly original recipe. that said, i think this is a very good "base" recipe that i like to use for other flavors of cake. i have made it with the pistachio pudding and it is good. ive also used it to make chocolate cakes (chocolate cake mix and vanilla pudding mix) but my favorite by far is my "emergency lemon almond cake". same basic cake recipe, only i use a box of lemon pudding mix and throw in about a cup of slivered almonds. bake in a bundt pan until done, then drizzle with a frosting made of 10x sugar, milk, and lemon extract. sprinkle w/slivered almonds and youve got a beautiful, delicious, moist cake that everyone will think you made yourself!!
