Pistachio Bundt Cake

It's so pretty out today, and I've made us some mini cottage bundt cakes from my Cozy Village Nordic Ware pan.  I wanted to use my Royal Albert March trio that my friend Colleen gave me last year. The pretty vintage hankie was included in the package from my teacup partner.  I'll be sharing the teacup and the rest of my gifts soon, when Stephanie has her reveal party, sometime in April.  

 The teacup has anemones on it, but I think it blends nicely with the pretty geranium basket that I put together. 

 I love iron baskets, and this is another one that I fixed with some new coco fiber and pretty plants.

Pistachio Bundt Cake

My friend, Debbie,  was kind enough to share her favorite birthday cake recipe that her mom used to make for her. Don't we all just love memories of our favorite foods and how they make us connected to those that we love?

INGREDIENTS:

Cake
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 2 (3.4 ounce) packages of instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil
Glaze
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a large bowl of electric mixer, combine the cake mix, pudding mixes, water, eggs, and oil; Beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour mixture into a grease and floured 10" bundt pan. I like to use a cooking spray, such as Baker's Joy, that has the flour and oil mixed because it gets into all the crevices.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. If using the mini bundt pans, check between 22-27 minutes.
  4. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the Glaze ingredients, adding enough milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over cake.

  5. I like iron planters, too. A stark comtrast between your corner and mine. My iron planter still holds the Christmas arrangement. That is the sweetest little individual Bundt cake. I always enjoy your tea time in the garden.

  7. Kitty, I have enjoyed your lovely yard! Spring is making its way to New York very slowly this year. I could surely go for some pistachio cake while sitting outdoors with you :-) xoxo

  9. Kitty, so fresh and spring-y! Love your teacup, saucer and plate. (and the hanky!) I don't think I've ever tasted pistachio except once in ice cream. I didn't much care for it but I think it would be better in a pudding or cake. xo

  10. Your pretty outdoor tea is the perfect way to say good-bye to March. I love pistachios and need to enjoy it more in my desserts.

    I'm looking forward to the big teacup reveal. My package came from a non-blogger in Texas. Everything arrived intact...except for the poor chocolate rabbit that couldn't stand the Texas heat!

  11. That's a beautiful teacup and saucer and such pretty colors. The bundt cake sounds really good. I have a recipe like that, but you add vanilla pudding and it is the moistest cake ever.

  12. Beautiful day to have cake and tea outside. Your geraniums are lovely and accents your lovely teacup.

  13. My goodness, you've received your exchange parcel already? The hanky is delicate and feminine, can't wait to see your teacup.
    I just had an email from Nordic Ware advertising their little bunnies cake pan for Easter which I just love. Do the cakes come out of the molds easily Kitty?
    Enjoy your gorgeous weather and send some our way please?

  29. Looks and sounds delicious, Kitty. Love the teacup with anemones - mine are still not in bloom in the garden, but coming up. The hankie is pretty - looks as though it has tatted lace edging? I can't really see the detail with its folds. Guess I'll just have to wait and see when you share. :)

  30. Your cake sounds delicious, Kitty. What a beautiful sight your leafy green trees must be! We are having another snow storm move in overnight. I am so tired of the cold and snow! It feels like this winter is just dragging on. That is a pretty teacup and the lovely hankie as well. Enjoy the rest of your week, my dear friend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

While at King Arthur I realized I want to throw out all my old baking pans and get all new!!! I love their mini nordic pans!!! Going to start buying a couple at a time!!! Your tea cup is lovely! I've been thinking of collecting tea cups by the month!!!Hope all is well my friend! xo
