Pistachio Cake

I got this recipe from my mom, it’s one she has made my whole life.  Our good family friends were coming to visit and they have always loved it, so I made one for them!  This is a great cake for people who don’t like icing, or for brunch/tea parties, or just whenever!

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 package pistachio pudding mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  2. In an electric mixer, mix cake mix, eggs, sour cream, pistachio pudding, and vegetable oil mix for 5 minutes on medium speed.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, and pecans.
