Pistachio pudding mix gives this moist cake a pretty tint of green. As it bakes, the outside browns nicely to form a slightly crunchy crust. The cake slices beautifully and would make a fun dessert for St. Patrick's Day. -Becky Gant, South Bend, Indiana

"I've made this cake before using only 1 box of pistachio pudding. The second box of pudding puts extra special taste, texture and moistness into the cake. Baked in a Nordic Ware Classic Bundt pan. Baked 350 deg. exactly 60 min. The outer crust was nicely browned and slightly textured and the cake was perfectly baked. Next time I will try adding 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract as in my previous Pistachio Bundt cakes. I made this for Mom's 88th birthday. It has been her specialty all our lives and for her grandchildren as well. Mom loved it!"
