This 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. To 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
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bundt pan.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Decorate with sprinkles!
