Pistachio Cake, one of those recipes you remember as a kid growing up!  I’ve had this recipe since ever since and it’s been a long time favorite of mine.  An easy recipe to prepare with WOW responses!  Give this one a try and see how quickly it’ll become YOUR favorite as well.


1 (18 1/4 oz.) pkg. White cake mix
1 (3.5 oz.) pkg. INSTANT Pistachio pudding mix
1 cup 7-Up soda or comparable
1 cup Vegetable oil
3 Eggs
About 4 – 6 drops Green food coloring, depending on your color preference, optional

1 1/2 cups COLD whole Milk
1 (3.5 oz.) pkg. INSTANT Pistachio pudding mix
1 (8 oz.) tub Cool whip topping, thawed
1/2 cup chopped Pistachios, for garnish, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease  a 13″ x 9″ baking pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine first five ingredients.  Beat  until smooth.

NOTE:  DO NOT follow the directions on the cake box or the pudding box – add them both DRY.

Pour into baking pan. Bake for 35 – 45 minutes OR until cake tests done.

While the cake is baking, prepare your frosting by combining the COLD milk and pudding mix together in a bowl.  Beat these ingredients until the pudding thickens.  You may need to place this into the refrigerator to set up a bit.  Once the pudding sets, add in the Cool whip topping and fold in until very well combined.  Place this into the refrigerator until the cake has completely cooled off before spreading it onto the cake.

Garnish with chopped Pistachios if you’d like.  SERVE and enjoy!


  1. I saw this one also that I want to try. My three men love anything pistachio! This would be great for St. Patty’s Day! Would love to try this in a cupcake version as well. Do you have to refrigerate the cake due to the whipped topping frosting?
