The original icing for this cake is made with 2 pkgs of dehydrated "Dream Whip" and 1 box of instant pistachio pudding. Make the "Dream Whip" as usual, then blend in the pudding until completely mixed in. Spread on the cooled cake. This keeps the cake moist and tender.
My fellow teachers ask for this cake every time we have a potluck. I make it in a loaf pan and ice it with cool whip mixed with pistacio pudding. I then add coconut and chopped walnuts. My family also loves this cake.
Good with chopped pistachios instead of walnuts
I have a similar recipe that is baked in a 13x9 pan. It has a "frosting" made of prepared pistachio pudding and cool whip. I also remember this as a cool summertime treat. Yum!
Great and easy to make. I made it in a regular cooking pan not the round one like it tells you to make it in and it was great!! The whole family enjoyed it!
i have not made the but i'am going to.
This is one of the best cakes I've ever tasted. I made it for a friend, and she absolutely loooved it! My husband eats big chunks of it every time I bake it. It's so moist, and the walnuts makes it taste even better.
This is also very good as a sheet cake. Top it with prepared pistachio pudding mixed with a tub of Cool's heavenly!!
Incredibly wonderful! Very moist and full of flavor. I only had 2 eggs on hand, but baked it anyway and it still came out perfect. This one's a keeper. :)
I've made many variations on the cake-mix-with-pudding bundt cake, but this was one of the best I've tried, with a wonderful nutty flavor. The soda is a bit of extra liquid that makes it really moist -- I forgot to pick up club soda, so I used diet ginger ale I already had and it was fine. Was a big hit at my office this morning, definitely a keeper.
