Prepare the Glaze

While the cake is cooling, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Add a few drops of green food coloring to achieve a light green hue

Glaze and Serve

Once the cake has cooled completely, drizzle the green-tinted glaze over the top, allowing it to cascade down the sides. Let the glaze set for a few minutes before slicing and serving

Ingredients Preparation

To create an irresistible Pistachio Bundt Cake, you'll need the following ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup unsalted butter

Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Thoroughly grease and flour a 10-cup Bundt pan, ensuring all the crevices are well-coated. This step is crucial to prevent the cake from sticking and to ensure a clean release

Mix Dry Ingredients

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This ensures that the leavening agents are evenly distributed, which helps the cake rise uniformly

Cream Butter and Sugars

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the softened butter with the granulated sugar and brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Add Eggs and Vanilla

Add the eggs to the butter mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition. This gradual incorporation helps maintain a smooth batter

Incorporate Dry Ingredients and Buttermilk

Alternately add the dry flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix on low speed just until combined to avoid overmixing

Bake the Cake

Gently fold in the pistachio pudding mix and the chopped pistachios until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter. The pudding mix adds a unique flavor and moisture to the cake
