In Carmel, Indiana, Joanne Loefgren bakes up this green-hued bread for any occasion, but it's especially appropriate for Christmas or St. Patrick's Day. The little loaves have a pistachio flavor, light cake-like texture and crunchy topping.

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine cake and pudding mixes. Add sour cream, eggs, oil and water; beat until blended. Pour into five greased 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans. Combine the pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over batter.
  2. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
