#BundtBakers: Sprinkles

4ae7b-bundtbakerspostThis month #BundtBakers are baking cakes with sprinkles! #BundtBakers is a group of bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bundts with a common ingredient or theme. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme or ingredient. This month fun host is Terri of Love and Confections.

Surprisingly, I was stumped by the task. As much as I love Funfetti cake (I used to request it for my birthday in college) I thought, “There has to be something else I could do!” So I reached out to Kate and she provided me with this recipe for Pistachio Cake. Sprinkles BundtTo fit our sprinkles theme I used green sprinkles instead of food coloring. The cake is already a light green thanks to the pistachio pudding so my green sprinkles melted into the cake creating an almost zebra like pattern! I did take a photo of the sprinkles in the batter as proof that I did indeed use sprinkles in my cake! (Photographic evidence to the right.)

This August marks the first in 5 years that Kate and I aren’t making a birthday cake together. (Cue the tears.) Her birthday was last Thursday and mine is in 9 days. If we can’t be together I might as well use her mom’s recipe! And the real reason we (aka I agreed to Kate’s suggestion) chose this pistachio cake is because the birthstone for August is Peridot – a light, bright green. A perfect fit for our August Bundt.

Pistachio Sprinkle Bundt Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 box pistachio instant pudding
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/4 C water
  • 1/4 C vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp almond extract, divided use
  • 3/16 C sprinkles, plus more for decoration (optional)
  • 1 1/4 – 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together cake mix and instant pudding. Add the eggs, water, oil, and 1/2 tsp almond extract until combined. Gently fold in the sprinkles, if using. Pour batter into prepared bundt pan.
  3. Bake 37-40 minutes until a cake tester comes out cleanly. Allow cake to cool in pan at least 30 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
  4. Make the glaze: whisk together 1 1/4 C powdered sugar, 3 tbsp milk, and 1/2 tsp almond (or vanilla) extract. Add more powdered sugar if a thicker glaze is desired. Pour over completely cooled cake.
  5. Decorate with sprinkles!

  1. I love the color of the cake. And how great it is the color of peridot for August – and my husband’s birthday is in August and he loves pistachios.

    1. 🙂 I have no doubt you could doctor this cake up using your own yellow cake recipe for him! Although this version as got amazing reviews from the guys at the gym, my husband, and myself!

  2. Lauren Darling! You are BRILLIANT! – I just love that you added GREEN sprinkles to the cake batter for an extra GREEN color. Brilliant! Such a pretty bundt cake too!
