When I told my daughter I was making a pistachio cake, and that it would be green, she was extremely confused.
Cake that tastes like pistachios? Green cake? Huh?
I just told her it’s a retro kind of cake. People used to make pistachio cakes all the time, at least in my childhood memories there are lots of them, and since I had never made one, it was time to change that.
The cake is easy and infused with plenty of pistachio flavor. It’s super soft and moist thanks to a box of instant pistachio pudding that’s added to a box of yellow cake mix. I love shortcuts.
