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!"

"This cake was SO easy to make. I selected the recipe because I had the ingredients on hand - I was looking for a bundt recipe in which to try out my new Thanksgiving-themed bundt pan from Williams Sonoma. I didn't have pistachio pudding on hand, but I had pumpkin spice instant pudding instead, so I used that. It was EXTREMELY moist and very tasty. I would definitely like to try this with the pistachio - I bet it would be very pretty."
