I baked! Wow! I k now it seems like forever since I have shared a recipe with you. I got this one from a new stamping friend Penny. She had made it for card club - everyone raved about it. It is really really good, moist and oh a tad addicting. I used my Demarle bundt cake mold.
 It was the perfect green cake for St. Patty's Day.
 Yummy chocolate chips inside too.
So you want some? 

Pistachio Cake by Penny M.
1 white cake mix
5 eggs
1/2 C Milk
1/2 C Water
1/2 C Oil
1 C mini Chocolate Chips ( I didn't have mini ones on hand, so I chopped up regular ones and it turned out great).
2 small boxes of instant Pistachio Pudding. (I only had one box of this on hand too, so I used one vanilla pudding and one Pistachio pudding. It still turned out great, not as green in color as Penny's, but still good.
Blend everything together.

Grease and flour bundt pan, you don't have to do this step using a Demarle Pan!

Bake 350 degrees for 55 minutes, or until done. In the Demarle pan I baked at 340 degrees for not quite 55 minutes. Also the Demarle will not hold all of the cake mix so I also got 9 cup cakes out of it mix and sent those to class with my daughter. Ya I was the hero of the day with her classmates and teacher!

Glaze: Powder sugar, milk, coloring and vanilla. I use melted butter in place of the milk... oh does it make for a really nice rich buttery glaze. Just mix in a little butter or milk till you have the consistency you want for drizzling over the cake.
Now I got to thinking after making this, that I bet you could use any flavor pudding mix to come up with different flavors. Richer Chocolate, or Butterscotch with caramel glaze. And what a nice cake consistency it makes too. Very moist and the chocolate chips make it even more yummier! You could color the glaze according to holidays too.

Thanks Penny for this yummy recipe. I have added it to my book of favorites.
