Go Green!

Last night at church, there was a Family Meal, where each family brought a food dish to share. For fun, for March, there was an Irish theme, you were supposed to bring an Irish dish. I made corned beef and cabbage and a pistachio cake. This cake turned out so well, I thought I would share the recipe!

Pistachio Cake

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup milk

5 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

2 packages pistachio pudding mix

1 white cake mix

1 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a bundt pan. With an electric mixer, mix all ingredients except chips until well blended. Stir in chips, pour cake batter into bundt pan and bake at 350 for 45 min. to one hour.

A perfect glaze for this cake is made by mixing confectioners sugar and water, and drizzle over the top.


  1. Oh I have just got to make this for my girls for St. Patricks day. they would love this! :)

  2. I love it when I can doctor up a boxed cake mix and create something new and fabulous! Your cake is beautiful and I'm sure it was just as delicious.

    I think it's neat that your church has a family meal like that. The ladies on a forum I frequent often make mention of something similar at their churches. My church doesn't do it, but I wish they would. How fun!

  3. This looks so yummy. I can't wait to make it to go with our corn beef and cabbage on St. Patty's Day!!

  4. This looks delish!! My mom loves pistachio nuts. I think I might give it a try. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!! Have a bless weekend!!
