foodie friday #4

Guest chef Di, The Blue Ridge Gal, sent me this photo and recipe (check out her blog here)

Oh boy.... had to dig to find this, but there it was on top of the fridge in the ratty old basket I keep recipes in.  I brushed off the dust and here ya go:

Pistacio Bundt Cake

1 Yellow or White cake mix

Add and mix into cake mix until smooth.

1/2 Cup Oil
4 Eggs
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
1/2 Cup Water
Green Food Coloring (just a couple of drops)
1 Pkg. Pistacio Pudding Mix

Place 2/3 of batter into greased bundt pan. 

Add 3/4 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup to the remaining 1/3 batter. (We use the Special Dark Hershey's Syrup)
Pour over green batter which is already in the bundt pan and cut through with a knife to marble it.
Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
Pour additional chocolate syrup over baked bundt cake to frost.  (I just drizzled it directly from bottle onto cake)

Nice moist cake and pretty for St. Pat's Day, Christmas, or any other holiday.  

Very yummy!


  1. This looks so good! I will have to dust off my bundt pan and try this! Thanks!

  2. I don't eat cake but I could be persuaded to have a slice of that. :)

  3. This looks and sounds delectable.

    wv: vanis. If that cake were in my house, it would vanis in a second.

  4. wv: "derene" which is how fat-fingered people type "serene" which I can link to the cake only in that it would give you fat fingers... and everything else too.

    Nevertheless... this looks awesome.

  5. Ugh. Just what I needed when I am trying to watch the sugar intake! Yum!

  6. The combination of orange juice and pistachio pudding is surprising
    ....makes me want to try it.

  7. Thanks, Daryl. Going to go eat cake now.. NOT! It's dangerous just reading the recipe.


  8. Looks delish.
    Next time I am in 'that' mood I
    will give it a go......

  9. Holy Moly! Gotta try this out! I, too, have a green dessert, but I'll save it for another time.

  10. I must try this! I love bundt cakes....and I love pistachios =)

  11. Thanks Daryl....on the day that I decided I really need to go on a diet.

    It looks seriously good!!

  12. when I make this, I promise to report back to you about how good it is.
