Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 1 box vanilla, white or yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.4 oz.) box instant pistachio pudding
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, combine dry cake mix with dry instant pistachio pudding.
  • Mix those together until combined. Then add in eggs, oil and milk.
  • Stir just until combined.
  • Stir in about 6 to 8 drops of green food coloring until fully incorporated.
  • Pour into prepared baking dish. Bake for about 25-30 minutes.
  • If you insert a toothpick into it, it should come out clean when done.
  • Allow cake to cool completely before making frosting.
  • To make frosting, put instant pistachio pudding mix into a mixing bowl.
  • Add in 1/2 cup cold milk. Stir until combined.
  • Now stir in your thawed whipped topping.
  • Once again, I put in a few drops of green food coloring to really bring out that green color.
  • About 5 drops or so. Spread frosting onto cooled cake.
  • Slice and serve. If you like, sprinkle with some crushed pistachios.
