Pistachio Pudding Cake

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day here’s a great dessert you can whip up for the cake lovers in your family.  I posted this recipe last summer, and thought this would be a great time to share it again.

This cake recipe is a yummy little recipe that my Mom has made for me over the years for my birthday.  It’s one of the top 5 moist cakes around.  I imagine that you could use other flavors of cake mix and pudding mix to change it up, but my favorite has always been the pistachio flavor.  Not everyone loves the pistachio flavor like I do, but I have to say everyone at my house tried it and liked it.

For the Cake:

  • 1 box pineapple or lemon flavored cake mix
  • 1 30z box of pistachio instant pudding
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. cold water

Mix all of the ingredients well  and pour into your favorite angel food or bundt pan.  Grease the pan first.  Bake at 350º for 5o minutes.  Let this cool on a wire rack, and then remove from the pan on to a plate for frosting and serving.  If you have the time,  refrigerate the cake overnight before frosting.  This will keep the cake really, really moist.

Baked Cake – Cooling

For the Frosting:

  • 1 3oz. box of pistachio instant pudding
  • 1 pkg of Dream Whip
  • 1¼ cups of milk

Beat all of the ingredients well.  The frosting mixture should form small peaks, just like a whip cream style frosting.  Frost the cooled cake and refrigerate or serve immediately for your eating pleasure.

And don’t forget the milk or coffee to go along with it. This is a great summer time cake.  The frosting is light, and the cake is moist.  This was a welcome home treat for my Travel Man, and it did not last long.  A great recipe to pass along.  Thanks Mom!

Peach Crisp – A yummy summer treat.

 

Last week while Travel Man was home I made a Peach Crisp with fresh peaches of course.  This is a nice treat for my Travel Guy, as he really misses the home cooked meals when he is on the road.  I saw the recipe on my Facebook news, and it was a post from recipe.com.  This was a really delicious dessert.  A yummy summertime treat.  And just a little bit different because the crumbliness has graham crackers in it, and not so much oatmeal.  That made the crunchy crustiness extra yummy.

The Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 7 cups 1/2 inch fresh or frozen peach slices (8 peaches – about 3½ lbs.)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2/3 c. coarsely crushed graham crackers (5 squares)
  • 2/3 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. oatmeal
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. butter

The Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

2) For the filling; in a bowl stir together sugar, the 2 Tbsp. flour, and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Add peaches and toss to coat.  If you are using fresh peaches peel and slice the peaches first,  and then coat with this mixture. 

3) Spread the peaches in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish.  Drizzle honey over peaches and set aside.

4) For the topping; in a bowl stir together crushed graham crackers, brown sugar, 1/3 c. flour, oatmeal, and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. 

5) Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 

6) Sprinkle topping evenly over the peach mixture.

7) Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until topping is golden brown. 

8) Serve warm with you favorite vanilla ice cream on top.  Makes 8 servings.

Now go to the store or your favorite farmer’s market, get your peaches, and get your crisp on.  A nice summertime treat.  Enjoy!
