St. Patty’s Day Pistachio Pudding Cake

This weekend we celebrated the holiday with the South Side Irish, St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Chicago. We attended the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon/Carry In and celebrated the holiday with family, friends and neighbors. Every year, I bring along a big tray of Mary’s Irish Scones and this delicious Pistachio Pudding Cake. It’s oh so easy to make and it’s beautiful light green color makes for a festive addition to any spring table.

1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a 10″ tube pan.In a large bowl mix together cake mix and pudding mix. Make a well in the center and pour in eggs, water, oil, and almond extract. Blend ingredients, then beat for 2 minutes at medium speed. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until cake springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Ice with Powdered Sugar Glaze or sprinkle with powdered sugar.

  1. Sounds like a lot of fun, Linda, and with beautiful food, too! The pudding cake looks amazing but I would certainly have made a beeline for those Irish Scones, too! xoxoxoxoxox


  2. …Always lots of delicious food, Dani. I look forward to the holiday, sharing lots of great food and visiting with old friends. We’ve all been stuck indoors because of the frigid temperatures so it was great to get out and see everyone again.


    1. It’s a fun cake for the holiday, Shanna. I would think that one could substitute any flavor desired. Happy day to you…hope you’re doing well.πŸ€


      1. We love pistachio flavor. I recently made a pistachio pudding with chocolate. MMMM. We buy them in bulk at Costco… we love the flavor that much. Your cake looks easy, which I am all about these days. Happy Monday!


        1. That’s funny that you should mention the pistachio and chocolate combo. I often make this cake with chocolate frosting! Great minds think alike!😊
