I do love a good chocolate cake, but I'd have to say this is my second favorite flavor. It's probably just nostalgic for me as I used to ask for it on my birthday, but it is tasty, nonetheless. AND, it makes a GREAT St. Patrick's Day dessert. Try it!
1 yellow cake mix
1 pkg. pistachio pudding mix (4 oz)
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp. almond extract
7 drops green food coloring
Combine all ingredients together and beat for 2 minutes. Pour into greased & floured BUNDT cake pan. Bake @ 350 for 50-55 minutes. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto wire rack and continue to cool. Drizzle with powdered sugar glaze (below).
1 lb. (about 3 1/2 cups) powdered sugar
2 T. melted butter
1/4 cup milk (add 1-2T more if it's too thick)
1/2 tsp. almond (optional)
2-3 drops green food coloring (optional)
Combine all ingredients together & drizzle over cooled cake.
