Pistachio Cake

Fact: I have no need for the amount of baked goods I make. I have no idea what possesses me at 11:30 p.m. on any given night to say, “Yes, I think I’ll bake a cake, or cookies, or brownie bars.” It’s one of the many wonders of the world. Just as curious as why I decided I wanted to make something with a vanilla cake mix and pudding mix. This is what I came up with, a good old fashioned, very moist pistachio cake. It needs no frosting, but if you’re so inclined, you certainly could put something on it, like a glaze.

Pistachio Cake

Vanilla Cake Mix
3.4 oz dry pistachio instant pudding mix
4 eggs
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 & 1/4 c water
Green Food Dye, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together and place into a baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Easy, simple, done! If you want to make it more green, just add some green food coloring to the batter before baking.
